Colleen’s Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt

I embody desires
My power can never be calmed
I breathe moments
That flow through timeless terrain
To add glory to wilderness.

***

I race like thoughts
Yet I could calm a myriad mind
I heal without words
Hopes crumble into me 
To create a balm for souls.

Thanks to Colleen and Trent for the inspiration.

#Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 222

Each sunrise speaks softly
Clouds seem to promise respite
Yet they perish thirsty
Sans water, sans loving friends
Haunted by the cleft curse queen.

Inspired by the image for the Tanka Tuesday Photo Challenge by Colleen M. Chesebro. Thank you.

Dreams #PoetryChallenge #Tanka

Theme-based poetry kicks my muse hard and when the theme happens to be “Dreams,” she rides on the waves, eager to explore each one. I tried to restrict her to one Tanka but another one just flowed. She has more in her pockets but I have reserved them for my next book.

A box full of dreams
She carries it with poise
Some just flutter away
Catching them is unrealistic
What is the fun of cluttering?

***

She buried her dreams
In the valley of despair
The deluge of tears
Drowned the irresistible
Empty-hearted, she sits forlorn.

A portal beckons
Adventurous spirit calls
Fears forbid next step
Yet we drop down to explore
Will we return to share?

***

The secrets lay bare
Harrowing, endless steps loom 
Fiery eyes threaten
Entrenched within crevices 
Shady shackles pull us tighter.

Abandoned princess
Sits by the dark pond, ordained
To usher in light
Her tresses create that magic
The dilemma of drenching haunts.

Dendrophilous dame
Held captive by clawed tentacles
Enigmatic entity

***

A statue comes alive
When darkness encompasses her
Spiritual sojourn
