Dandelion Wisdom ~ Tanka X

Age comes to us all
A burst of vitality
Vibrant as the sun
Fading to transparency
Like ghosts of the stars

Summer Breeze ~ Tanka IX

Heeding Haiku With HA ~ 15 July 2015

Hey Blue Eyes it’s me
Loving memory’s frisson
We live forever
In the chords of summer breeze
And Polaroid summer sun

From today’s prompt:

Cirocumulus ~ Acrostic IX

Clear And Vision Unlimited

Iridescent sunbeams radiating

Reflections of precious gems

Opal and moonstone

Contained in a jewel box of sky

Under sapphire canopy

Morning light transformed

Undulating with each invisible breeze

Like a whisper of cerulean silk

Upon Nephele’s milky breast

Sweet summer sky
