Here are your two words for this week: Follow & Lead
HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY!
sprinkle trail with seed
so I may pursue thee
gleam light across nighttime path
disengage darkness from my heart
restore inner vision clarity
as I attentively embrace my life
Demonstration of your physical force
A thorn in understanding your aim
Gazing into your eyes, asset
Lacking inner connection
Dynamism comes forth
Within your core

Tanka – Departure
My pen bleeding ink
warm tears blooming the letters
poem to myself.
Your unforeseen departure
melancholy bind my heart.

Today you are mine
finding me in the garden
you carried me up.
Magical touch held my thoughts
into slow rhythm merged my heart.

Goddess of Flowers
Goddess of flowers,
I proclaim your eminence,
Softly, colors hum.
Dancing naked in your scent,
Gifted renewal passage.

Transfixed by your gaze,
insightful eyes softened mine.
My cheeks in your hands
awakened my dormant heart.
We are one form, one spirit.

Until we meet my precious
