As she worships
The sun moving across
Mighty stands the sunflower tall
The coiled shield
Of the attentive snake
Upon the rock, it basks away
When the sun drops
Steadily on the move
The imprinted snail looks for food
The flight of days
Peaceful the gentle breeze
Turned violent storms of water, wind
Life’s fragile code held tight
In the smallest of packages
Stamped onto each finger
Creation's form hides everywhere
This week at Tanka Tuesday it’s poets choice. I tried a new style, the cinquain swirl, for this poem.
Cinquain Swirl has a 2 syllable beat that is repeated as the refrain, 2R-4-6-8-2R-4-6-8-2R-4-6-8-2R.
It may or may not have rhyme. However, it must be at least 2 Cinquain long.
Photo: I caught this snail working it’s way around the calla lily leaf in my backyard.
