Angel Frost – A #Tanka

Welcome to my contribution to my weekly #Tanka Tuesday poetry challenge. This week, I kept the prompt word “Angel” and changed “devil” to “Lucifer.” Both words have many connotations.

Looking Forward – A Tanka

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Cold winds are racing across the foothills on this fine Colorado day. The sky is a pale blue, and a white haze of clouds has crept over the mountains. Ron is working in the kitchen preparing a fabulous meal to commemorate the day. The holidays are hard […]

The Winter Solstice

(Image credit: Deviant Art) From the beginning – time was measured with the waxing and waning of the silvery moon; and with the rising and setting of the golden rays of the sun. The tides of the waters rising and falling like breath – the essence of the earth mother […]

Autumn’s Last Gasp

Autumn breathes the last gasps of the season, as leaves of brown and gold drift from the treetops – a blanket of decaying warmth. Grey skies steal the color from the day, mourning the end of another time of year. The darkness envelopes and caresses lulling the earth to sleep, […]
