Written for:  Carpe Diem Special (2nd guest) Kala Ramesh #2 “tangled thoughts . . .” (tanka)

Kala is not only a gifted haiku poetess, but she also writes beautiful tanka in a very nice and personal way. Her tanka are mostly a reflection of daily happenings like for example “children trying to stretch their playing time before going to bed”.

an evening
of tangled thoughts . . .
through branches
even this rugged moon
looks tattered at the edges
© Kala Ramesh

the days shorten
the colorful leaves
Ah! what a sight
mysterious moon
behind thin clouds
leaves falling
tears fall
this autumn day
has gone by
such sadness
without the full moon
© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

combing through mingled threads
to sort out colors
trying to choose the bright hues
leaving dark shades in background

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
