Seven Movements (tanka)*

Artist Susanna Shaposhnikova

abandoned alone~

midday lights ‘n shadows play~

now awakens dance~

swaying twisting in the breeze~

gracefully like willow trees~

*Note: I love ballet for its physical beauty of movement in time to music. Seven movements are the beginnings to learn ballet. I hope that you enjoy both in the video I have chosen. 🌎 ✌🏻💙

Take care, be safe.

*Note: Tantra isn’t just about sexual pleasure. It’s more about celebrating your body and feeling heightened sensuality. The practice intertwines spirituality, sexuality, and a state of mindfulness. It encourages a sensual experience that may be experienced alone or with a partner. Enjoy the musical selection I have chosen. 🌎 ✌🏻💙Take care, be safe.

Reflection in Marble (tanka)*

warm as human flesh~

chiseled form displays mother’s~

deep love for her son~

gently held within her arms~

exhibits fragility~

*Note: The word Pietà finds its origins in the Italian word for “pity” and the Latin word for “piety”, giving it a sense of “compassion” and “devotion” altogether. Apparent from the depiction of Mary and her dead son in her lap, the compassion of the mother towards her dead son is quite obvious. My musical choice is I love Air by Bach & Pietà by Michelangelo. The video shows detailed features of the sculpture and its humanistic elements.

🌎✌🏻💙 Take Care, be safe.

Halcyon Days *

early days of spring,

this fever begins,

settling itself within,

concentration withheld.

watching petals as

they drift past

partially open window.

drifting sweet scent,

borne by early

morning rain

permeates her room.

sunshine breaks,

daydreams

spinning around

thoughts of him.

for her time moves

endlessly slow

until they meet

beneath their tree.

lightest pink colour~

bringing sweetest youthful blush~

cherry blossom blooms~

*Note: I’m not sure this is a haibun, as this is a first attempt for me, however I do know it is a haiku at the end. enjoy the sound of cherry blossoms. 🌎✌🏻💞 Take care, be safe.
