“The Cure,” 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 “soar and wait.”

The words were perfect for me this week. I feel like I am undertaking a new journey – letting go of the old and venturing into some kind of new territory. A scary but promising undertaking. I know I am ready to move on.

Knotted up in pain –
my anguish waits to abate,
so my heart can soar.
Healing energy explodes
bathing me in crystal light.
