Short Story Tanka

May is/was Short Story Month. So I have written an Acrostic & Telestich Tanka.

Shifting ideas
Honing words for amusement
Oblique memento
Released emotions whisper
True moments of symmetry

Tanka for World Poetry Day 2016

A Poets Tanka

Preserving moments
Observations caught in time
Echoes in silence
Thoughts reflecting melody
Searching for flawless rhythm

A Poems Tanka

Perceptions narrowed
Overseers of lost dreams
Emotions set free
Momentary reflections
Silence fills the emptiness

Radio Tanka

Racing with the light
Adjusting the antenna
Dreams to realign
In through airwaves after dark
Old time sounds of an era

Magic Tanka

Here is my poem for this weeks prompt for Facebook Group: Poetry in Motion. Using the words THOUGHT and MAGIC as well as a photo.

Mysteries of thought
A time-worn aporia
Games of sensation
Illusions from a warlock
Conjured moments of drama
