#SundayWalks ‘Sometimes The Sky’s Too Bright’ #Poem

Sometimes the sky’s too bright

To see the clouds or birds.

Sometimes the sun burns through

The shade of leafy trees,

And blinds impatient eyes,

Still searching for visions

Of angels smiling

At the fire in her eyes.

Alas the sky’s too bright

To taste the salt in her tears,

Or quell the thirst in her heart,

And yet she journeys on

In search of her angels.

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE ‘Cute Dandelions’

This Tanka is for Colleen Chesebro’s challenge. This week’s challenge is to include #Synonymsonly of Sing and Celebrate. I’ve used ‘humming’ and ‘saluting’

Dandelions

Cute dandelions,

The loveliest wild flowers,

Humming in the breeze,

Swaying with daisies and blades

Of grass, saluting the sun.
