Undream these endings.
Unspell these words caged by time.
Unsorrow this song.

Between stars watching.  Neither
old nor new.  At last, complete.


Once again, a combination:  Sue Vincent’s “Time” photo, above, inspiring a tanka that includes both Colleen’s weekly challenge words and the word prompts from the Secret Keeper.

    I love all the “un”s–the mood seems to fit so perfectly the ending of a year and the unknowns of a new one.

    I just noticed I wasn’t receiving your beautiful posts! What the heck? Love this one though. I re-checked the ‘notify me of new posts via e-mail’ and hope that covers it. Hope you’re well!
