venus 3 days s

Were I Other. Were I spoken in a different voice.  Were I fallen into impossibility.

I would be like stars.
I would echo the feeling
that follows the wind.

Were I made of light. Were I pulsing like oceans.  Were I to open as wide as never and nothing.

I would radiate
rainbows. I would paint moments
with sound. Fill absence.

For Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday, with synonyms for love and time.  I’m not entirely sure this qualifies as a haibun.  In the spirit of, anyway.

The embroidered watercolor is a work in progress.  I plan to keep embroidering it until I stop.

    I have been blogging, writing and reading poetry for quite a few years and I can hands down say this is one of the best I have ever read! It is like sound waves reverberating across the internet so we can sense the feeling of the poem and the art wherever we are. Just beautiful.

    Wow!! So love this, Kerfe! Your mandala is stunning and I like the stitch you chose – does the embroidery stitch have a name or did you make it up? 😃
    You poem is lovely too!
