Day of the Dead (tankas)*

clear circular sphere

fore tells a full moon rising

all hollows eve nears

living await Los Muertos

family gone brought to life

candles burning bright

photos ‘n items cherished

placed upon their graves

nights joy where death has no role

Celebrating memories

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt “Crystal Ball ” September 28, 2020

Awaiting *

never ending nights

passed by,

as she’d look toward

a dark sapphire sky.

waiting for her Beloved

moon to rise,

He her first

if ever there was.

this time of year

has always been

the forever season,

hers alone.

in His iridescent glow

she sits quietly

as He captivates

her with His charm.

this rapture takes hold,

grows spreads like a virus

within her.

theirs has always been a

templed relationship

based on their own

divine intervention,

the one and only now,

desperate to remember.

together they’d play

their game of give and

take with love sick words.

her quarantined syllables

are like every touch,

finding its path to the

up ended truth

that is His way.

His breath a slight

breeze, sweetly

whispering to her,

join me our time

is now, sit beside me

on bended knees.

she knows the time

has come too respond.

Quietly she answers

with her treasured

beautiful inside words.

i have no bouquet

of roses, just this one

i give to You which was

nurtured by my love

during your absence.

She knows He will

slowly move away,

leaving her to

await His return

once again.

the stars now are

her companions,

His trinkets of Love,

he left in her

care.

Note: Tonight there is a full moon, known as the Harvest Moon. Every three months represent a beginning to a new season. I hope you enjoy my musical choice.

Provance *

purple haze fades

in dawns soft light;

reveals fields of lavender

seen far and wide

embalmed all the air,

calming mind

with each breath

*Note: I’ve chosen for you a video of the lavender fields of Provence with a instrumental.

The smell of lavender wafting in a summer breeze, the gentle swaying of hillside olive groves, empty sun-swept corridors between picturesque stone buildings—Provence is a region full of sensory romance, rewarding travelers with its breathtaking vistas, mouthwatering cuisine, and small-town tranquility. The Romans once dominated this area, and many of the towns serve as visual historical accounts of France’s southwestern region, with remnants of Roman, Byzantine, medieval, and Renaissance structures incorporated into the modern construction of the upscale (but still quaint) towns. When you’ve had your fill of idyllic lanes in famous Aix-en-Provence and enjoyed St. Tropez’s legendary beaches, head for one of these smaller, lesser-known towns.

🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

Imagination Untethered *

love’s

comet

soars,

amongst

unfettered

blazing

through

endless

indigo

sky

takes

breath

away

as

heart

releases
