A Tanka for World Water Day 2016

A Water Tanka

Waves of change engulf
Ancient springs once flowed freely
Transitional times
Exploring technologies
Rivers of hope will converge

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

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

Tango Tanka

Two floating adrift
Along old Argentina
Nostalgic frisson
Graceful gauchos gyrating
Or just like Valentino

A Doris Day Tanka

With blue eyes smiling
From big band to silver screen
Que Sera, Sera
Dreams preserved in celluloid
A sentimental journey
