Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #8 dragonfly


dragonfly,
how do dragons fly?
with invisible wings
fueled by a heart of love
and a belly filled with fire

Here are some tanka from the real poets:

shamanic journey
a red dragonfly comes
to guide the canoe
ancient wisdom unfolds
becoming one with the dragonfly

glittering blue
above empty riverbed
wings of dragonfly
through the mist, the croaking of frogs;
soon the riverbed will be full again
© Ese & Chèvrefeuille

dragonfly dances
above the old pond of Basho -
the sound of water
wings reflecting sunlight
on young green leaves

Thanks to Chèvrefeuille for daily prompts on

    Hmmm.. am not so comfy with the first two of 'others'... the third is a delight - but yours holds its own against this... for me at least. YAM xx

    1. Thanks for your comment, YAM. I like the way the first brings a person to be one with nature.
