Kerfe Roig selected the words for this week’s Tanka Tuesday challenge: “Mingle and Drift.” I used the word mix for mingle and designed for drift.
The photo below, taken by Merril D. Smith, inspired this double inverted nonet. The clouds in this photo are so expressive. I wish I could paint. The colors and mood fit a gray day!
The Weather Witch
My guiding light was a weather witch. She taught me to mix the winds and to call down the lightening. Yet, I've seen her in rain not utter a spell. Her power was natural— bound by trust in magic and with the understanding that choice designed with the use of elements held no power over them. Her strength lay with separating the light from the darkness held within. ©2020 Colleen M. Chesebro
