Loss (tanka) *

sunglasses obscure~

emotionally filled eyes~

tormented by grief~

loss embedded so deeply~

heart so heavy, might erupt

*Note: A few words about this song I’ve chosen to go with this poem. To me, it is a song reflection and realization in looking forward to when we all pass and subsequently looking back on your life from there. Realizing through your life the love you experience from everyone is what sticks out and the negativity you experienced is an afterthought. Basically, while your here, enjoy things. Don’t resent people and be happy with what you have and enjoy it. Don’t focus on the negative and you will be a much happier person in the end. If you’ve never listen to their music, do so, it will move you right to your core.

Much love to my fellow bloggers out their baring their hearts and souls.

That Day (tanka)*

internal turmoil~

percolates in that dark place~

minds cognitive ruse~

apprehensively aware~

afraid it will boil over~

*Note: We’ve all experienced That Day, you know when it all becomes too much. Sometimes it’s hard to suppress our emotions, how you deal with them is what counts. Mine is meditation and music. Close your eyes and listen.

Bloom Cycles (acrostic)*

Beyond my window, petunias

Languish in the midday sunshine

Opening with the morning light

Only a few fade by end of day

My eyes observe as they transition

*Note: my mother had an affinity for flowers, so it’s not far reaching that I do as well. Photo was taken by me of my flower box. Enjoy the musical sound of petunias.

Winter Menace (haiku)*

shades of black gray white~

captures winters gloomy day~

evokes foreboding~

lg/04022021

*Note: The photo was taken by me, though we don’t get much snow in winter, on this day we did. Winter days can have many faces. When the sun shines, reflecting itself on snowy surfaces it sparkles with beauty. Giving us a sense of peace. Than there is the flip side which I address, an inner feeling of sadness (depression?). The weather like people has its mood swings. The music and video are well suited. I hope you watch it through to the end. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.
