a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

A Twofer

A poetry prompt from Mindlovemisery's Menangerie Shadorma and Beyond requested a Shadorma and possibly a Tanaga.  With my photos as inspiration, I have attempted both styles of poetry.
(Shadorma)

Spring water
with bubbles floating
happily
heavenly
gather speed over gravel
passing watercress


(Tanaga)

Spring water flows swiftly past
Clearly crossing gravel fast
Bubbles danced and winked at me
Boots in water so happy!

I was married to a man for 43 years who wrote poetry, loved him terribly and never understood him. Simple and flowing poetry..I appreciate it ....too late.
Beautifully done, Gail.
Hugs!!

p.s. I just wanted to add that I lived in a "literal" world. He lived in an "emotional" world. I know that now.

You did well here, especially covering two memes.

It would be lovely to be laying in that gently running spring water right now! Such a relaxing feeling.

I think they're both perfect!

Gail,

I enjoyed both forms..I wish there were spring waters to wade through as we now enter winter. Hey, I have to love some pink boots.

How refreshing to look at the photos and lovely to read the words.
Happy Christmas.

Bravo! I don't know what these types are, but I like the poetry. Are you ready for Christmas? I'm working on it, very slowly.

Not familiar with the two styles . . .
They sounded good though . . .
Warpter looks clear and cold . . .

Both are delightful and I love your photos!

Susan Anderson said...

Well done, though I am unfamiliar with either form. One thing I do know, forms are fun when it comes to poetry!
