Tanka – Gift/Song



Prompt: Gift/Song

Colleen’s Weekly Prompt


Small gift on table
brilliant with silvery thread
my heart sings praises.
Church wedding bells echoing
all around the mountain side.

Thank You for the Gifts


Creation is dressed with treasures

Some hidden from my sight

When least expected,

Out peeps little gifts,

Offering to me,

Gifts that I cherish.

What wonders walk by my side

How would I survive

Without these treasures,

Those which come like a gentle mist.

If I had not seen Thee

Coming to me

Clothed in the friends

There beside me.
Thank you for the Gifts

They are my Fortune

So long as I keep remembering

That all is one in Thee.
