Today’s poetry is inspired from Colleen’s poetry challenge, which gives the freedom to choose our own syllabic form but concentrate on a chakra color to feature in our poem. Please visit Word Craft Poetry to understand chakras. I chose tanka and violet color.
visual delight that jolts
royal touch that holds
just one glance satiates me
even dew lingers to love
violet bells dance
tunes of nature inspire
winds wane to watch them
beguile me in my backyard
scenario to cherish
Ah! The healing touch,
profound awareness moments
smear my soul with peace
to feel mystical embrace
and the shift of perspective

I chose Violet color, which symbolizes creativity, wisdom, sensitivity and spirituality. It inspires, motivates, balances and uplifts. Thanks to Colleen for the inspiration to write syllabic poetry.
