Tanka: Guiding Light

blue whippet with a pink ball on the beach in morning sun


morning mist lifts
unraveling peaceful blues
indigo mountains
the lighthouse knows where home is
the light in us knows too

  1. Tankas & haibun are my go to forms these days; your poetic message is so lyrical & hopeful. Most of the “cards” out here on the trail are rife with smiles, giggles, stifled guffaws–fun indeed.
