P.S. Many thanks to Brian Vos, whose prompt I linked to above, because after I shared this poem last week, he told me it would be interesting to see more of my older stuff. So, he’s the one who caused me to open Pandora’s Box. 🙂
see Moon in pieces
like a shattered glass window —
it will not hurt you
A senryu for MVB: Window. Thanks to Lorraine for the “moon in pieces” image. It got stuck in my brain, and this poem was born. I wish I could have found a good image or, even better, taken a picture at the particular lake that I’m thinking of.
A short one today for FOWC: Forward and MVB: Chapters. I meant to write something more detailed, but it’s not happening yet today. Inspired by the fact that I have been writing in a journal every day since December of 2007. Also sharing with One-Liner Wednesday because the poem might be 3 lines, but it’s short enough to be only one sentence. 🙂 The top picture is of my current journal.
Inspired once again by the prompt from yesterday, I wrote this tanka about reading. I make time to read every day — it’s kind of like eating a meal to me, not optional like a dessert — but there’s still never enough time to read as much as I wish I could, or if there is enough time, then I use too much of it on other things, such as watching videos on Youtube.
My home library:
Full bookshelves are prepared for
Reading with gusto
If only there was enough
Peace, and quiet time waiting
This poem is a response to this prompt about wildlife. There’s plenty I could have written about, even in the city where I live, because plenty of birds, butterflies, lizards, and other animals live in the garden in my backyard. Today I was particularly inspired by being in a park with a lake earlier. The water sparkled, and so did some of the insects. Also linked to DVerse OLN.

Hovers in the sun
