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

Haiku Ten – Two

Whispers through the night
Joy is released with the dawn
In each others arms

A land full of cheer
A breath of magic survives
Price of admission

A romantic heart
Dances upon slender threads
Invisible bonds

As the pale light dims
Roses release sweet nectar
Tear drops shaping lives

Me and Malt Whisky
Gives inspiration for verse
Glenfiddich’s the best

Lazy summer eves
Laid back with an easy mind
Sweet smell of lilacs

Sleep encircles me
A longing for one unknown
Daylight feeds the pain

My passions unfurled
A lull amidst the chaos
Sharing thoughts as one

In my dreams always
Graceful curves, enchanted eyes
Mary Louise Brooks

A ribbon of words
Shifting thoughts dipped into ink
My type of writer
