draped in lustrous robes
I merged with silvery sky
breeze ruffled my hair
ecstatic, I looked around
to ensure I was alive
monsoon clouds cloak me
joyful moments pause to view
when our dreams get wings
celestial artist unfolds
silvery white hinterlands

Thanks to Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which has inspired me to create a double tanka (poems based on color and weather) I chose silver, the color of the Greek goddess Artemis (Roman aspect: Diana). It is symbolic of purity, strength, clarity and focus. It also represents grace, sophistication, elegance, and glamor. In the spiritual and mystical world, silver also has associations with the moon, which has connections to feminine energy.
