The Magic Ball

It’s a magic ball moving upward into sky with no impetus - r o l l i n g s l o w l y into day glowing in and out of clouds. Sunshine starts to slide s n a i l - l i k e down to earth again with unseen guidance and scarlet in the gloaming. Beauty trails the magic ball. Oct. 11, 2012 For Leonora Galinta's Tanka Crazy - Sunshine Poetry Contest

    I didn't realize you were describing the sun until I read a comment or two. DUH. Now - that I understand - I like it mucho. Love, daver

    That magic ball is situated approximately 93 million miles from us and is many times larger and hotter that our planet. Nice poetic way to describe the sun.

    I thinka this tanka is awsome. Sunshine in the morning to blossom. And when the day ends it slowly desends. And sleeps just like it's playing possum.
