  1. I haven’t stopped by for awhile,
    But then I heard your heart.
    Singing to a golden silent sky,
    Before it left to introduce the dark.
    The night, just as the dusk fades,
    Will fill your heart yet once again
    With the music of unseen waves.

    Take care,
    Mick ☮

      1. The feelings of ones heart
        Not always easy to impart
        Yet, if we all, did but try
        Beneath a silent golden sky
        Our hearts singing to its tune
        In anticipation of a golden moon
        A satellite that oft inspires
        Birds to sing in huge choirs
        Starlings in their thousands fly
        In murmurations that fill the sky
        Its not their voices we hear sing
        No, its every beat, of every wing
        True, it breaks the golden silence
        Their hearts singing in compliance
        To a golden sky and its, shh, silence.

        Take care,

        Mick ☮

      1. We had a thick frost this morning and the sun is sparkling on it – the boats are glistening in the moorings but I don’t think I’ll get many pictures as I’ve spent all morning writing! maybe tomorrow… Have a great day xx

      2. I can’t get into comments to retrieve ones that have been trashed by accident. I was replying to a comment you made and something happened to trash it! In the past, I could go to Comments and restore it but now I can’t because the layout of WordPress seems to have changed in the past few days. I just wanted you to know in case you thought I had ignored one of your comments. xxx

      3. Thank you so much for letting me know Kim. I had left a comment to say how much I loved your beautiful tanka, especially your ‘symphony of the senses’ 💖 I noticed the lay-out on wp has changed again and I have to go via /wp-admin to check the folders.
