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. 🌎 βœŒπŸ»πŸ’™

*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. 🌎 βœŒπŸ»πŸ’™Take care, be safe.

Infusion *

far above the ocean,

there is a bluff,

here is where she seeks

out her Beloveds ear.

she falls to her knees,

palms pressing earth.

murmuring her deep

desire in breathless

whispers, having faith

that the wind delivers

her plea, trusting

it will be heard.

this yearning

will not be subdued,

without His touching

tenderness. there

in lays her struggle

this burning within.

He is her

uncontrollable

addiction.

Sun’s Awakening *

her pale silver crested lover

fades, as she wakes,

in his shadowed light,

she no longer lingers

within his cool embrace.

They have circled their

beloved child Earth

since its conception.

once more alone she

simply stretches along

the horizon, body slow to

rise, her eyes open,

casually glances across

distant mountains, bathing

them in warm beams

of light, pastel shades

of softest amber,

pale blue, her mirrored

reflection upon the clouds

as they drift before her.

Morning glory’s tightly closed

with her nightly departure,

now greet her return. slowly

unravel for her, revealing their

star-shaped blooms

indigo blue,

purple stars

centered,

ivory encircles,

her lovers moist

kiss lingers.

his marks,

reminders

of midnights passion.

Mountain Man (haiku string)*

his pilgrimage

unquestionably begins

~

between mountain range~

lays a valley richly green~

wildlife roaming free

~

upon horizon~

atmospheric changes seen~

grey clouds assemble

~

adventure awaits~

surrounded by nature’s wild~

tranquil silent peace

~

snow capped mountain peaks~

hide steep inclines rocky crags~

dangers of falling

~

challenging nature~

belies perilous journey~

mans need to conquer

~

never ends

*Note: I started this for

The Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic

however I missed the entry date, so it goes. It was indeed hard to write exactly 99 syllables. I find it difficult limiting myself to a specific number of words that can be used. I did succeed with this one but I don’t know if I’ll attempt another any time soon. I have respect for those that can. The traditional mountain music is unique onto itself, steeped in long history. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.
