Fairy Orbs Flicker – A Tanka
Welcome to my contribution to my weekly #Poetry Challenge, where you can write your own Haiku, Tanka, or Haibun using the prompt words of light and dark.
This week, I decided to write a Tanka. I used “darkness,” for dark, and kept the word, “light.”
Both words have many connotations. Depending on how you use your synonyms you can alter the meaning of your prose & poetry in many ways. Don’t be afraid to experiment with synonyms. Sometimes subtle meanings pack the most punch in your poetry. Play with the words for different reactions.
The best poetry has layers of meaning.

Fairy Orbs Flicker
Fairy orbs flicker –
an invitation to seek
a celestial faith.
Darkness consumes my spirit
until the light fills my heart.
