March 2021

what dream is this?  circling
spiralling into form
slipstreamed fertile reborn

Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday theme is dreams, so I’ve written a variety of dream poems for March, a dreamy month I think. I’ve interspersed some of my previous March grids.

March 19 grid 2s

in March I
ruminate return
rains that be
come sun-dappled spring—shining,
blooming with birdwings

march 2018 grid s

dreams become
part of the landscape
filling in


begin to dance
with waves of light, singing
sun into roots, filling
my nights with dreams
of dawn

Poetic forms are, in order, abhanga, shadorma, haiku, badger’s hexastitch.

    I love these–all the variations, and the art with hints of spring. We are definitely blooming with birdwings now. To me, March might be more of a month for dreaming, rather than a dreamy month. Today is a rainy, dreamy day.

    I love all of these and appreciate you naming the forms.
    Yep change is in the air, birdwing is in bud. The squirrels are out in force lately. It can be very messy as the snow goes but there’s beauty in that too, creative destruction. I find myself reaching for the seed catalog.

    Wow! This the art and poems are spectacular, Kerfe. I’m blooming with bird wings! I woke up to the haunting sounds of a mourning dove, a sure sign spring is ready to begin. You’ve made my day with this collection. ❤
