Ancient Secrets โ€“ A Tanka

I kept the prompt words this week of “stars and fate.” Instead, I concentrated on showing instead of telling by choosing my words carefully.

Twinkling stars above –

murmuring fairy secrets,

the chasm of my fate.

Patois cloaked with dark meaning

empathic words of feeling.

    1. Thank you so much. The Tanka is totally about the events in my novel. ‘Patois,’ in this case, refers to ancient languages. I could not believe how these words came together. I know my fairy nymphs are guiding me. โค
