Sally Cronin picked an excellent theme for us all to work with this week for our #ThemePrompt challenge: “The Night Sky.”
The poetic outpourings of your souls impressed me. Well done, everyone! I was happy to see Radhika again. Her poem, Starry Date, held a romantic edge. Tina Brakebill shared a lovely Tanka called de novo.
I really enjoyed Elizabeth’s Gogyohka, The Night Sky!
Congratulations, Elizabeth. Next month, it’s your turn to pick the #ThemePrompt for next month’s challenge. Please Email me your choice at firstname.lastname@example.org before next month’s challenge.
Unlocking the door Feeling the scent of the night They remembered everything Seduced by the stars Drifting towards love
This Tanka has a magnificent pivot: “The remembered everything.” Read the first three lines together, and then start again with line three, adding the last two lines. Notice how you get another perspective on her words.
