reflections

ancestors speak in voices
carried by skies singing wings

Colleen’s #TankaTuesday prompt was the watercolor, above. She also challenged us to write a wakiku–two seven-syllable lines that some how connect with the hokku she wrote to accompany the painting. You can read Colleen’s poem here.

    Brilliant wakiku, Kerfe. I felt the ancestors presence in this image as well. I do love the way this came together. Your image below is also fitting. I love the nod back to Egypt, the birds, wings, and the stag! Excellent. ❤
