toward s

now—the cold
transforms sunset
clouds with furied
winds—far away you drive
distances, all bearings lost–
here alone, I wish for headwinds
to turn your wheels around—back to me

Colleen’s #tanka Tuesday words this week are meaning and passion.  The winds have certainly been impassioned here of late.

toward close up s

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope all your loved ones are on their way home.

    Kerfe, WOW!! You captured the winds of change (?) and the return of lost love so expertly in your image and your words. Here in Colorado, we had 60 mph winds that literally knocked over electrical poles yesterday. I was shocked! Stay warm and Happy Valentines Day! ❤

    beautiful – and I can’t help it, but I immediately saw, and can’t not see, a sweet little black puppy in your painting – LOL!
