blue horizon

blue horizon 1s

 into the morning–
feel the wind
in time with the sun as it
rises restless, veiled–

to become other
than yourself,
follow the traveling waves–
calling to the birds, singing
each branch into green

A shadorma chain for Colleen’s #tankaTuesday inspired by the photo, above, chosen by last month’s winning poet, Jane Dougherty.

  1. I love the gentleness of your tanka, Kerfe, and the imagery of the lines:
    ‘calling to the birds, singing
    each branch into green’ –
    so calming and peaceful.
    The artwork is beautiful!

  2. Hey Kerfe — Hi poet!. Wanted to let you know I am “temporarily” sightless in my right eye from a retinal disease. It is a struggle fir me to write, but I will still wrote my pieces, going very slowly. Reading at any length is extremely difficult, and causes painful headache — so wanted to say thanks for contributing to OLN. But I won’t be able to read what you wrote, yet I wanted to visit. I spent a little time writing this best I could with one eye, i copied it, and I am pasting it in here to say hi. Got an operation coming up in about a week when the infection is down. Hopefully things will get back to normal.thanks, Rob
