Pull of the Moon #tanka #ekphrastic

lines drawn star to star
plastered up there in the sky
a map where birds fly
ancient navigator’s hand
leads my paper crane heart home


This was written for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge. This week’s challenge was an ekphrastic using the picture at the top of the page. I chose to write a tanka.

          I have heard that the crane is revered in many parts of the world, and Asia more than most. Just looking up “paper crane” I found “The paper crane is a symbol of peace, love, and hope, and healing during challenging times”, which is close to the meaning I was thinking when I put in “paper crane heart” :)
