abundance

can we remember
the dance, the music?—when life
gathered us as one?

Selma and Colleen chose this Degas painting of Russian dancers, above, as the image prompt for this week’s #TankaTuesday. When I was looking through my archives for my own image to accompany my poem, I came across a collage which I had done for one of Sue Vincent’s photo prompts. I decided to use the same title–my wish for what the earth provides freely to humans, if they would only let it, honor it, nourish it–instead of destroying it with their selfishness and greed.

  1. I love this poem, Kerfe. I miss dancing and can’t wait for the day when I feel comfortable being in crowds again. And you are so right – when people allow themselves to sway to the music, their differences melt away and they just enjoy their love of music. Your collage is wonderful. I, too, wish humans who love and respect our planet more. Great post! 🙂
