The leaves shake off drops of light:

Sijo 2

          it may be cruel to her/but I cannot shake off this
         ominous presentiment/of the girl once I loved most
    she has left this world long ago/stepping on the lonely path

Throughout The Journey
Throughout the journey 
You may slip and fall 
Just shake off those bumps in the road 
And rise above it all 
Follow along your path to greatness 
There is opportunity in every difficulty 
Empower yourself 
You have the ability...

I am winning over my greatest weakness
Don't you see that we will never overcome to depress
Let's shake off the reality of compress
Universe is the combination of all the things to access

First Light
The pond is brackish
a smear of lichen,
a low haze.

Water birds dabble in their sleep.
Soon the sun
will dash across a drop of dew
to burst dams of light.

Wings will shake off
dwindling shadows,
slap the wet air
until the water awakes.

Fluffly stuff
I am not trying to call your bluff
But it's funny stuff is fluff
It's very much like love
Sometimes soft, sometimes tough
It's always on one's cuff
Can be hard to try shake off
Under or overstuff
Its too much or not enough
Fluff and love
Love and fluff

Shake off the blinders
Shatter your shameful shackles 
Shape your destiny
I see dreams thirst for freedom
And a soul plead for release

Time Stands Still
In this very moment 
Time stand still
It hits me every time
Faith refills.

I shake off the emotion
try not to think
but waves of the past
keep me in sync. 

Mystery of pleasure
that can not be described 
Why it matters I don't know
Words never transcribe.

Premium Member WHICH WAY TO SPRING
WHICH WAY TO SPRING

Confused by season’s regress,
flustered Northern birds flapping wings.

I shake off the polar snow,
my coal black boots where blizzard clings.

Dressed cozy warm like Christmas tree,
A fir keeps me warm in Spring.

Premium Member Tomorrow's A Breath Away
today your heart is pierced and you’ve lost hope
but dare not die today
tomorrow’s a breath ‘way

shake off the darkness
this heavy mantle of woe
that entraps your soul
re-write the future today

one choice to be made-
stand tall; cast the fear aside
watch as light invades

Dawn at the Pond

The pond is brackish a smear of lichen, a low shaded haze. Water birds dabble in their sleep. Soon the sun will dash across a drop of dew bursting dams of light. Wings will shake off the dwindling shadows slap the pond and call until the water awakes.

i am wandering: all of a sudden
Two Tanka: 4 & 5


4) I am wandering
    since when I became a man
    easily move to
    tears by a touching story
    unworldly one’s noble deeds


5) all of a sudden
    I like sending a letter
    to the friend afar
    troubled mind cannot shake off
    written on a drifting cloud

A NEW BEGINNING
Today I will greet the morning,
Shake off any shackles of gloom.
Open my window,
Welcome the world in.
Watch the sunlight dance in my room.

Today I say goodbye to sorrow,
My heart free as a bird winging above.
All my cares are cast
By the winds of yesterday.
For today LIFE and I are in LOVE.

Dream On
  Believe in no obstacles and limitations.
  A sweet song can heal, cure and delivery a massive storm out of your life.
   Shake off depressions, rejections, discouragement, sorrows and tragedies.
   Dream on, dream on, dream on, dream on and dream on!
   Doubters are foolish to underestimate your power of greatness....

Dance with me
Give me a chance to dance with
Let my waist swirl around you.

Lock me tight,
Let my hands wave around your neck.

Lift me up baby,
Lock your hands with mine.

Don't move your body without me.
Let's break the sweat no matter how wet we get.

Turn off the fear and let's shake off the dance floor.
Dance with me honey....

Stall'd Tears
Into the bathroom 
and close the stall door
Go to the corner 
and sink to the floor
 put in the earphones, 
don't care who hears
Breathe slow, close eyes,
 shake off those fears
Pull on the sweater 
and just hug real tight
Rest on these knees 
until all is set right
Get courage to stand 
and open the stall
Leave as if nothing
had happened at all...

Premium Member Better Days Ahead
Gloominess and sadness visited you.
Feeling a heavy burden in your body.
Drearing another day that already 
started.

Days passed, longing past memories.
Remembering best moments of life.
Coming back to your mind ceaseless.

One day, you woke up fed up.
Deciding to shake off anguish.
Starting to live with a renewed mind.

Music and joy

   Music is like medicine
   It can help you start the day.
   Come on get movin,
   Breath in and out,
   Listen to your favourite song,
   Have a dance, sing and shout.
   Raise your arms in the air,
   Wriggle those hips
   And cheer!
   Have a dance around the room,
   Let's have fun,
   Shake off all the gloom.   
   Have a fantastic day!!

Dawn
The pond is brackish
a smear of lichen,
a low shaded haze.

Water birds dabble in their sleep.
Soon the sun
will dash across a drop of dew
bursting dams of light.

Feathers will shake off
dwindling shadows,
wings slap the ponds surface
until the water awakes.

By then 
my eyes will shine like silver moons;
I will write a poem
but not this one.

Dark Child
He sits at the bottom of the hole
Above him he sees the needle of light
Falling as it bottles him up.

He is weak and weary
Wants to stand up but cannot
Wished to talk but he has no heart
Yearns to see but has lost his sight. 

He wants to be seen
To shake off the dust
Fell clean again
Rise up the bottle of light
Find it again which burnt in the furnace....
