Awakening Came

awakening came

slowly, manifestation

of illusion’s veil

lifted as if a dense fog

luminosity presides

  2. Gosh, Gayle ….
    You seem to be able to do these poetry challenges flawlessly. I am still thinking about my WAKA and going WAKADOODLE in my attempting to even think I could do it.
    GREAT job and BRAVO …!!!

    • Haha… funny girl! Well I’ve had a little head-start on these–I’ve done a few tanka/waka/haiku before. I really do love these Japanese forms of poetry. It’s challenging to write something meaningful in a few words. The Masters are superb.

      Thank you, too–I’m so glad you liked this.

      Namaste,
      Gayle xoxo

  8. Your tanka was grounded in beauty. Some days, it takes longer for the fog to lift.
