Rainbows in Ice

branches and hedges
tinkle with icicle drips
each drop a rainbow
a tiny microcosm
light, shadow and reflection

My response to Carpe Diem honors Jane Reichhold (1937-2017) D. a rainbow bridge

In today’s episode of our special theme week, we have a series of tanka from Jane’s collection, A Gift of Tanka, as inspiration:

desert leaving
one of my dream souls
in the lizard
patterns of his back
passport to change

waterfall
torn to ribbons
bright mist
this body someday too
a rainbow bridge

high-tide beach
blue into the clear sky
the openness
for all things to become
the rush of another wave

free to fly
the ocean flows
into a cloud
the spirit released
expands in whiteness

    1. Thank you, Dorna. Sorry I’m only just responding to your kind comments, but we had a powercut from five o’clock yesterday afternoon until this morning. I’m really enjoying my cup of blackberry tea!
