Tanka Sequence

                                                     a dreamer’s dream
                                                     the fluff of fairy tales
                                                     and happy endings;
                                                     the fresh fragrance of you
                                                     like a May morning after rain
                                                     all that I feel
                                                     a lovely anguish
                                                     and a longing
                                                     relieved only by your kiss
                                                     and your arms encircling me
                                                     cheek touching cheek
                                                     your hand firm on my back   
                                                     guiding me as we dance
                                                     our hearts falling
                                                     into the same rhythm
Red Lights

Best strength, Adelaide. _m

hearts rhythm
in this dance of memories
a full moon
calls this highest tide
of strength

Adelaide said...

Thank you, Magyar. Yes, memories do give me strength. A lovely tanka.

This is beautiful Adelaide - It reminds me of a delicate song from "Miss Potter" called "When You Taught Me How to Dance" (which I love, even though I'm perhaps supposed to be too masculine for it). Love your poetry, my friend.


Adelaide said...

Dear Warren,

So happy to hear from you. Thank you so much for your praise. All of my "love" poems were, and still are, inspired by the one and only love in my life. His memory will keep me inspired always.
