Ciphering

mapping the wind s

I’m mapping the wind–
an idea to carry,
gravity released.

No more searching for lost words—
at the vertex, spiraling.

For Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above, and Colleen’s poetry challenge with synonyms for inspiration and plan.

I’m still circling around.

    “Mapping the wind […] gravity released” … just what aeolus will do and how it will do it ! I love this, and the work, Nina and Kerfe.

    I love the magic of “mapping the wind.” Those last two lines solidify the idea of finding the words you are searching for. This is an excellent Tanka. I’m quite taken with the presentation. ❤

    Wow! Your colors are fabulous! And your stitching so perfect! 😃
    What are you using for the base? Looks like paper… And could you tell me how you got your stitching so even? 👍

    Your amazing poem leaves me wishing to be able to release gravity every time I feel as if my feet might leave the ground. I sometimes have days like that. Your colorful melding and bleeding art is intriguing. Excellent, K.
