scattered dreams

sleepless I
reach deep skyward, wish
ing for wings
to appear–
my hand pauses, empty, catch
ing only moonlight

Colleen chose me to provide this week’s #TankaTuesday image, and I sent one of my artworks, above. I always enjoy reading what others see in what I’ve created. I haven’t done a shadorma in awhile.

I went back to the original post with this image, which was in 2016, to see what I had written (a san san based also on another poem), and used it as a starting point for what I wrote.

  1. Kerfe, this shadorma touches on so many feelings and connections. The rainbow always reminds me of the fey. For whatever reason, I feel them through refracted light. Your art is filled with so much magic. Thanks for sharing this beautiful piece with us. โค
