Welcome to my contribution to my weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge, where we use synonyms for the prompt words. This week I chose connection for bond, and beseech for seek.
You will notice that I also used the prompt words at the end of my Haibun. I did this because I believe it solidifies the meaning of my poem’s theme built around the words bond and seek.
My journey brings me to a nearby prairie slough where prescient reflections shimmer under the winter sun. Today, I am in pursuit of fairy enlightenment. You know, the kind where magic resonates in the shriek of a hawk and in the howling yips from the coyote pups that play on the sandy shore under a full moon. The alchemy of the moment is not lost on my hungering soul.
A numinous pact –
as turquoise heavens beseech
Mother Gaia’s goal.
Spirit, water, fire, earth, air,
her connection reigns supreme.
As I gaze into the pond I see the reflections of the woman I’ve become. Past and future meld as one. For today, the wisdom I seek is my bond with the one.
