Tanka 2 Life Dance

                                                   a man bent with age
opens trunk, heaves  . . .  wheelchair lifts  --- plop

                                                                 a love dance begins

frail arms link, lift, hug, swirl, down
                                      dosey doe  - death do us part

LOVE God is always love Forever seek the kingdom; Praise the creator Keep giving what you can give Please endure until the end ANGELS Beautiful Heavens Protecting the meek ones earth Watching over us Helping us to cope with life Comforted with hope and trust MUSIC When you find rhythm You find your hearts inner core Celebrate the times Make them better than before Reminisce and dance all night

Sun Dancing

Twirl across the fields
in an adoring frenzy.
Chill is forgotten.
Our feet sing like hummingbirds.
Sun fingers tickle our souls.

Life is Like a Maypole

In…out…ribbons held
Around, around, the Maypole,
Building as they go…
Around, around, in and out…
Weaving patterns in their dance.

In…out…days of life,
Around, around through the years,
Building as we go…
Around, around, in and out…
Weaving patterns of our life.

Over, under, braid, 
We weave our days, one by one,
Layers make them strong…
The beauty of our patterns
Deepens as our years go by.

In…out…days of life,
Around, around through the years,
Building as we go…
Over, under, in and out…
Weaving patterns of our life.

Sun Dancing

dancing across sky
stepping between passing clouds
not skipping a beat
the moon longs for attention
in the end sun is eclipsed

It's Spring Again

Spring has come again.
It’s time to visit good friends.
Get off of your butt.
Lay laziness aside man.
Dance and prance and make romance.

Details | Tanka | |



will it never end?
(this question from projection)
a stark scene indeed –
world in this awful white shroud,
memory of spring erased

but courage my friends
bountiful spring will return
in its old glory
for now a shoot breaks the snow
nether gods have awakened!

Sun Dancing

sunshine dancing on the rippling water sets it glistening reflecting the sun's beauty in sparkling water diamonds

Flight - for Metamorph Contest

	Flight (Original poem)

	It’s morning
	early on when
	I begin to sparkle, 
	I radiate,
	burn bright,
	reach high and grasp,
	talk fast and loud,
	create chaos,
	risk all to
	(flying is the best part).

	Flight (Tanka)

	Morning, early on.
	I dance, radiate, burn bright, 
	chaos in my grasp. 
	I’ll chance my manic madness — 
	anything so I can fly.  	

	By Jack Jordan
	For Debbi Guzzi’s “Metamorph Free Poetry Contest”

One New Tanka - Rick Parise

hibiscus blossoms
whipped by wild tropical winds . . .
flower flamencos
in pink, yellow and coral
dance in the flaming sunset
