Tanka: Night Walk

dreaming – night walk through
landscapes of otherness
your hand in mine
come, listen to heartbeats
feel my tune, see my thoughts

Tanka is a form of Japanese poetry, similar to Haiku, but older and consisting of max. 5-7-5-7-7 Syllables.

Tanka: Enticing Melodies

green mead, frail blooming
birds’ enticing melodies
when you grasped my hand
dragging me into your dreams
swift overwhelming journey

Tanka: Balmy Breeze

singing birds, sunshine
vibrant beams of intense warmth
fond smiles, tender thoughts

balmy breeze on lips, sensing
your gentle kiss, faraway

 

Tanka: Mute Utterance

thawing snow, moist eyes
stormy new moon, starry night
sensing your heart beat

remote caress, motionless
endearing utterance, mute
