Today’s Oracle continues on the theme from yesterday. Colleen’s poetry challenge this week included words (hard, soft) I was sure would be in its magnetic word selection, and I was correct. A tanka from the Oracle, with dots. And as a bonus: the alliteration follows the NaPoWriMo prompt.
when darkness lingers
hard as haunted voices hole
in sad broken nights
the soft breath of morning stars
melts the fever with dancing
