First blush of glimmer
bids farewell to dapper night
the crimson skies kiss
gently cascades touching life
Glossy or dull, coarse or smooth,
slimy or prickly, fleecy or grimy
matte or metallic, supple or brittle
texture adds character to everything!
Feel and reflect on
the flickering thoughts of mind,
ravel its beauty
in a meditative trance,
drifting across the cosmos.
I have used” feel and beauty” for “touch and charm.”
In response to Colleen’s weekly Tanka Poetry # 18 challenge – Charm & Touch
As the rays of the dawn touched life,
it welcomed me with open arms,
nurturing and loving me tenderly!
When harsh winds mauled me down,
It pulled me up from the chasm,
showed me the light at the end of the tunnel!
The loving embrace of your arms,
ignited in me a passion for life,
creating beautiful memories!
As dusk cast its shadow on life,
and the birds flew away,
it infused me with comfort and solace ,
till sleep blanketed me.
That is the magic of a “Touch”
It speaks no language,
but yet, is all embracing,
conveying it all with a mere touch!
