Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

Tanka – Stark & Trap

To use only their synonym in any form of poetry. In response to Colleen’s weekly poetry prompt #61.

tree

Desolate and bald

the net of desertion fails

the lone tree stands tall

amid a blanket of snow

certain of sprouting  afresh!

    I’d like to think that way. Of life beyond death. Of Hope beyond despair. Great thinking, Radhika.

      Hope beyond despair…..how beautiful! That’s the spirit we need to hold on to, in life when we feel like giving up! Thanks Asha 🙂

        Yes, I believe so too. But the immense possibilities it adds to my writing calibre. It’s just amazing. How do you do, love?

    A while ago I was reading a post on depression and then I see this. It felt so connected. Inspiring…

    Perfect lines for a wonderful snow covered picture and for sure desertion in this whole expanse with just one tree standing tall. Great words, Radhika.

    Exactly what we need to follow in life. Without getting disheartened by falls and failures, to be certain of sprouting wherever we are . Well expressed, Radhika.

    Absolutely certain! Nature has stories to tell us and a little thought can help us see the wisdom that it speaks. Loved the wisdom, Radhika.

    Excellent Radhika. You are on a poetry roll. This tanka reminds me of a tanka that I had written on a similar picture. 🙂 Nature inspires.
