Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Tan Renga Party in Progress: In the Twilight (continued)



Renga Party in Progress: In the Twilight

in the twilight
mist creeps over the fields –
stars twinkle

climbing vines of honeysuckle
scented breeze lures out the moon

moonglow touches earth
sparkles brightly on still water
diamonds on the pond

sudden rainfall scatters the light
a lightning flash makes a frog jump

brittle rings break
amid drifting leaves –
Luna, eclipsed

swaying branches dance
with the autumn wind
Misha D Sky

two silhouettes
under umbrella
at the bus stop
Misha D. Sky

navigating by instinct
on the road to Shangri-La

love echoes
in the halls of paradise
a blackbird’s song

umbrella eclipses kiss
stolen amongst sweet whispers
Dancing Echoes

day meets night
my love lost in dark
feel his aura

his skin kissed in the scent
of autumn dreams

witching hour
shimmer of the moon
caressing her curves

there in the gentle ripples
their hearts speak one language

celestial bodies
envious of the lovers –
twinkle each other

spiritual lantern whisper
chorus of eternal love

scent of hyacinth
mingle with the cool moonlit air
nights to remember

purple beauties wink merrily
lovers drink in the mystique

holding hands
light spring in step
– swing sways

on the children’s playground
memories grabbing me by the throat

early temple bell
young monk shudders in his sleep
dream interrupted

strutting rooster crows
as farmer sips his morning tea

and the hunter, he waits
he waits as the sun rises
in the Azalea grass

plea and answer, eye to eye
and the bow is lowered

trampled pride
on a trembling lip
it’s dawning
Mish D Sky

morning wood fuels the fire,
he wants coffee, tea and me

arrow pierces flesh
quivering quarry succumbs
passion springing forth
Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.
