Through the Storm #tanka

osprey hovering

The truth is simple
Your inner essence is there
Clouds parted now sun
A friend’s heart is transparent
If you truly need to know


Written for Colleen’s Poetry Challenge.  Each week she gives us two keywords, only we must use synonyms only, not the words themselves.  This week  the key words were the poet’s (me ;) ) choice, so I chose “Clear” and “Nature” This week I decided to do a Tanka


I have not been participating in this poetry challenge very much lately.  I’ve felt uninspired and still do, but decided I need to write something, even if forced…..

    Well, crap! I’ll have to think of a way to inspire you! What an excellent photo… as usual. your Tanka makes me want to do a bit of inner reflection. So, tell me what inspires you. I love the feedback! :D Besides, I’m glad you’re here.

      Oops, I didn’t mean it that way :) I just haven’t been inspired to write at all, particularly poetry. I’ve still been doing fiction prompts,but not super happy with the results, but I’ve written very few poems in the last few months. Maybe when summer is over and my mind is clearer…
