A yarn of sunshine

"I've got sunshine" TANKA~ 1 This heavyweight wind jiggles the chimes limbs hanging sensitively a thousand sound waves invade visible radiation ~~~~~ TANKA~ 2 Dark moonlight tempest blunders off the mountain top a massive flooring… the courageous beam of light saved souls upon meadow blades ~~~~~ TANKA ~3 A place called daylight where the beam is always pure luminescence if you could only feel this you’d ask to hold the torchlight ~~~~~ TANKA~ 4 Somewhere were you sleep the fluorescence substance light absorbs your beauty every second that you breath the light becomes like sunshine ~~~~~ TANKA ~5 Sky of falling stars belong in my diary notification renewing my wedding vows sunshine begins with me ~~~~~ TANKA~ 6 Missed the snooze button; pendulum rods tick out loud morning bird and worm; sunlit curtains smooth rays anonymous melody ~~~~~ TANKA ~7 Two rainbows petals peek outside with loneliness against no sunlight rainy weather condition no color will bring you back ~~~~~ by;PD 10-10-12 for: contest

What a beautiful set of tanka, Linda! Like them all, but I give 4 and 7 a slight edge over the others:) [now you've got me singing Otis Redding's - My Girl ... and am overwhelmed by memories and emotions!!] // paul

yes, I read the section for me that you wrote using the idea of my haiku set. You did a very clever thing there and I commend you for supporting the victims of breast cancer. Ravindra made quite a tribute, didn't he? Thanks for that blog and for your focus on that issue. Luv, Andrea
