Trilogy ….. 俳句 ….. 川柳 ….. 短歌

Illusory ….. Haiku 俳句

Rhythmic illusions
Once in her lifetime heartbeat
One dances … for you…..

 

Gaze ….. Senryū 川柳

Charcoal etched voyeurs
Poised dignity protects her
onyx sculptured heart

 

Masks …..Tanka 短歌

Masks for passions lost
acquiescent gloss and brume
strength mends her sorrow
prisms of her own designs
prisons of her owed desires

Mist Destinies Tanka 短歌

amidst dew and murk

amongst sea foam and sand stars

rhythmed tidal fates

‘tween what was and ….. what might be

transits of missed destinies

Mist Destinies

Photo from Eyes of a Dragon – Mist Destinies

This photo appeals to me. I wrote an earlier Misty Pathway Haiku from this same image! My muse seems to prefer fog, mist ….. and mystery! I am fortunate in that this concrete transit is but a short walk away from home.

 

Pirate Treasure Tanka 短歌

A Pirate’s lost map

beckons that ‘X‘ marks the spot

‘neath vexing cold sand

‘tween odd flotsam and jetsam

beware of too many ….. spots

Beach Sticks

Through the Eyes of a Dragon Tanka 短歌

An invitation….

laminates of silvered time

from dawn until dusk

dance with these rhyming photons

  Through the Eyes of a Dragon

Dragon Sunrise

Thera Tanka 短歌

Volcanic nightfall

Santorini memories

Via Lactea

even Galileo mused

 it’s full of stars everywhere

Beach Tanka 短歌

Unbalanced heartbeats

rhythmical studies in stone

mist understandings

sinuous tidal cadence

littoral admonitions 

Stones

Winter Bloom Tanka 短歌

Rustic sleight of hand

formations of straw cadets

rural armouries

breaths of Augusts past, arise

unleash wintery desires

Winter Bloom

Misty Haven Tanka 短歌

Exhaled dragons whiff

vaporous jeweled ice motes

tangerine beacon

reveals lone sanctuary

❍ overdue lunar eclipse ❍

Dragons Whiff

Barn Solstice Tanka 短歌

§ Murmuring petals §

scorned as harvest worthy gold

each has but one reach

spectrums of boundless colour

rural timber nods in awe

Barn Equinox

Solar Frost Tanka 短歌

Whispered auroras

mapping out each glacial route

dawning crystal breaths

glittering hoar frost needles

compass bound to each snowflake

Moon Frost Tanka

Crystalline memoirs

lost rural geometry

pale frozen farmscapes

lunar rime trumps solar zeal

fog bound distant horizon

Blue Chair Tanka

  Azure West Coast Throne

no sanctuary from rain

strait observations

time and tidal gravity

slowly destroying the crown
