I don't count years
anymore time does not pass
for me, I relive
the same day over again
they are all the same

May go to Fargo
Just to hear the girls say, Yah
Gingerbread cookies
Wonder along with snowmen
Wishing they'd made more women

Light lingers longer
But the nights stay dark and cold
Late winter sunshine
Casts longer shadows, snowbanks
Remain steadfast as mountains

please no more snow
make it go away today
I have had my fill
give me sunshine and blue skies
send me balmy breezes please

Black-capped chickadees
Visit bird feeders with hats
White as snow and tall
As those beefeater guys who
Guard the queen and never blink

scarlet cardinals
white snow everywhere I look
I feed the stray cats
praying they will make it thru
the hell season they call winter

cloudy cool Spring day
dandelions growing strong
took over my lawn
knelting down on hands and knees
they don't break free easily

Only guess so far
Of coming green in tufts not
Green grass places now
Just dirt and turf destroyed, plows
Shrink at their last heavy hands

waiting for a call
skyping with my grandbaby
though too young to talk
shares her energy fully
her sparkling eyes shine brightly

who we have ever
known who such fierceness, peerless
now still, years before
we struggle to paint over
useless drab paintings thought bright

Waking with the light
That dawns quite early so bright
Birds sing some tweet tweet
Their songs not caring that we
Cannot see where, who they be

Rose with early birds
Grazing in buffalo herds
Like symbiotic
Grasshopper chasing egrets
Watching goats feed back and forth

tanka--5-7-5-7-7-

Morning comes late now
Lying in the dark I hear
The dawn chorus start
Faintly around four in the
Morning I slumber till eight

waiting on dishes
while playing online words, games
here, FB and there
giving a whole new spin on
multitasking now tonight

Waiting on dishes
I stand there and swish, fingers
Pop bubbles of blue
Iridescent rainbows swirl
Incandescent dreams unfurl

risking on pogo
while a machine does the work
on a lazy day
wishing machines did all chores
and money grew from small trees

She stands she swishes
Her crackling crinolines
Such a sound, such fun
Round she twirls round she whirls
In love she's dizzy with love

bringing this back from the past.... first pasting part of the first post by that writer sharing what Tanka is...
"tanka preceded haiku by a thousand years, often written in the following pattern
5 beats/ 7 beats/ 5 beats /7 beats/ 7 beats -there other forms but let us keep it simple
if you have written Haiku, Tanka is a luxury of words. unlike traditional Haiku emotions and feelings are acceptable topics."



Woke to see the sun
Sending rainbows round my room
Playing hide and seek
Crystals hanging in the moon
Amped up their clear energy

Taking time to play
With work day fast approaching
Time running away
Will my life ever return
To what it was before now

No time to just be
Feeling the pressure always
Have more compassion
Says that quiet voice within
Welcome a new beginning

Stress is dissolving
Waterfall evaporates
Daffodils open
Even this cool rainy day
Surrendering Spring blossom

Full moon shining bright
Lighting winter trees at night
Reflects on the pond
Serenity breathes within
Filling up with compassion

Alone with tanka
No one else wants to play
Solitary voice
My cat keeps me company
Purring like she's listening

Play like its your path
Like its the best way you pray
Frolic through the day
Pet your cat, wear that new hat
Or that raspberry beret

Rain came back again
Feels like living in England
No sun worshipping
Thick mist rising on the pond
Raindrops gentle metronome

Frozen like it now
breathe cannot be found
to rize hot in air
catch or release know
reign in the moisture
