Tracing Heavens Canvas by kiley 16

HALF-MOON RISING
by kiley

Tripping the wild mushrooms

Warmth caressing – fire salsa dancing

Tympani notes rushing the river

 

Half-moon eyes light the skies

Stars melt – weaving strings of silk

Altering streaming hues

Crisscrossing the mid-night stars

 

Rendezvous with reality’s non-sense

Nothing – something –

Needs to make sense

All of the time

Rocked a Patch

DOOR Template Instructions

5 Words: | Plain | Laugh | Site | Rock | Secret |

Tanka [5 – 7 – 5 – 7 – 7]

honeysuckle flowering patch

ROCKED A PATCH

A secret no one knows
A site hidden in plain sight
Cloaked honeysuckle
Rock wall covered – leaves on ground
Rain poured – I  laughed & stayed dry

It was my secret
Never to be discovered
Hiding in plain sight
Boogie men stared at this site
In laughter I rocked a patch
