Tri-Tanka I (tanka)

To start this series
in thirty-one syllables
Japanese Tanka
A short song to bring you joy
Jemverse social media

So here are first lines
Crafted by the poet’s hand
Found and captured here
To form and syntax structured
Voicing life in five short lines

And I play with words
Crafting here my poetry
for you the reader
To take, ponder and reflect
for life’s many bright moments

Of Writers and Readers I

Part 1 of 3

Cathartic the writing
the pen to the page
Words from the poet
the seer and sage
To capture life’s moments
like a photograph here
And bring to the reader
a little more cheer

Yellow, I see them
and myriad colours more
Jewels in the night sky

Stars I

As stars like diamonds
Gathered in a darkened sky
Night became as day

The Poet’s Gift

Beauty in
a little verse
Never sad
and never terse
Words to cheer
and bring a lift
All within
The Poet’s gift
