This Midsummer Night

A couple of verses of something I’ve been working on…Wishing Solstice Blessings to All 🙂


Night fires bright

Beacons and bonfires light

Up the hills tonight

Dancing snakes of torchlight

.

This Midsummer Night

*

Singing and chanting

Blessings be granting

Smiles true and enchanting

Fae spells be casting

.

This Midsummer Night

Sun and Shade

Here’s my offering for this week’s Weekly Tanka Challenge, hosted by Kiwinana at Ramblings of a Writer.  The words are “animals” and “sunshine”. The prompt can be found here.  Go and check it out!


Glorious sunshine

Cascades in golden sunbeams

Now that summer’s here

All animals will enjoy

The season’s warmth or find shade

Relieved (3 haiku)

*

After all that’s been

I can now breathe deep, relieved

That peace will find me

*

Breathing in and out

Mindful of tranquillity

Relieved to be still

*

Relieved to just be

Searching for serenity

Never-ending quest

*


I think there’s a theme here… 🙂
