Angel Wings

14 88

Cascade: a poetry form created by  Udit Bhatia

 

Angel Wings

Insightful Presence

Leading me forth

Across verdant fields

Solemnly entering

Towering Pine Forest

Bestowing Sanctum

 

Majestic visual aura

Sparkling rainbow colours

Radiate from the roots

Life source animate Pines

Soaring Guardians sway

Insightful Presence

 

Whisper on the breeze

Giant Pines calling my name

Rising echo within my heart

Colours swirling from the core

Searching for reason

Leading me forth

 

Ancient Guardians

Consciously still

In-waiting

Lift up their spirit

Welcoming wings

Across verdant fields

 

Voices in the sky

Draw nearer

Choral of Angels

Poised alight

Softly humming

Solemnly entering

 

Expansive wings

Settle on supportive arms

Forest communion

Murmur unison

Wings embrace

Towering Pine Forest

 

On Angels’ wings

Beloved descending

Golden light envelop me

Encircling reverent forest

Earth and Heaven merge

Bestowing sanctum

___________

Plunge

Over

Fishing quay

Dog undertake

Reflexive rescue

Child in water current

Canoe capsized at rapids

Fido with a foot in his mouth

Child bobs up head first, wailing ensue

Coast Guards warmly envelop dog and child

Emergency Harvest

#Haikai Challenge #52 (9/22/18): harvest #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #haiga #renga

Friday I received an emergency alert on my cell phone, a tornado was about to hit us.

As if one tornado was not enough, it ended up being three tornadoes back to back in the space of approximately 30 minutes.

A few minutes after the cell phone alert, all power went off, leaving us in the dark for three days.

Some lost homes; others are still in the dark.

Harvest collected prior to the storm scattered to four corners of darkness.

Without refrigeration at home, we lost all our food.

The good “harvest” came from solidarity within neighbourhoods; everyone helping each other.

This to me was the greatest “harvest” of all, abundant selfless caring and love for your neighbour.

 

turbulence chaos

where is your support system?

Neighbour at the door.
