Connections Play

There is no secret
No perfect way to handle
All the things life gives –
It is only now, living
Through each moment, we are, have.
Alarm bells clanging,
Favorite songs playing, blare,
Everything is there
To keep us wanting, needing –
Engaged in doing, being.
We are the present
Happening over, in time,
Carrying talent
Gifts to share fairly and kind
Leaving no regrets behind.
Love is our reason
Even when we cannot rhyme
In all the doing
Filling each second of life –
Understanding the plot line.

I wrote ten pages in my journal today. This tanka is an excerpt. I picked a subject to photograph and include, then used Adobe Express to complete the design.

Shorts (haiku and tanka)

1.
The grass outside hides
A cave where our dreams reside;
Let’s shelter inside.
2.
Keep On
Pursue life and love
There are enough death and hate,
Keep forever safe –
From thought of our causing harm,
To these selves freely given.
3.
Who will carry us
When we have nothing to give,
Like Winter bare trees?
4.
Their desolation
Lies thick as whimpering pups,
Whose mother is lost.
5.
Say, “Hello, today!”
Yesterday has retreated
Leaving vacant space;
Tomorrow may not arrive
For us, uncertain alive.
