Strawberry Moon #tankaprose

LATE POST

I looked out of my kitchen window on
Tuesday night (14/06/2022) and was surprised to see the yellow moon. It was attractive to look at and remained attractive until Wednesday morning.

It looked 90% bigger than usual. This happens especially when the Moon’s orbit is closer to the Earth – giving it the appearance of an even larger and brighter full moon.

I gathered more information about it on Google. It read ‘Strawberry Moon is not red or pink. The name comes from the Native American Algonquin tribe who used the Strawberry Moon to collect June strawberries according to the old farmer’s almanack.

Last full moon of spring
the time of great abundance
appeared in the sky
rays pass through the densest layers
evocative imagery

Sure Vibes #tankaprose

Climate change, suddenly it started to rain.
A strong wind blew.
The trees were uprooted
and I got stuck on my way home.
I heard your sweet voice,
you were looking for me by phone.
I could not respond.

Love pumped in the blood
i plunged deep into it
heart’s desire doubled
a machine message failed but
souls connected with sure vibes

Sketchy Life #tankaprose

Once the fire was burning with anger. The flames rose so high that sparks were soaring in the sky. The Gods were so frightened that they ran to God Varuna and he arranged rain to calm the fire.

From then on, the fire seemed to have something attractive in the water. He found her cool and sweet. So when water falls on him, his anger calms down, but the water realises how hot the fire was and how difficult it was to live with him.

The two still love each other, but from a distance, as the water tries to get closer to the fire, it evaporates.

Your fragrance in me
reminds me of the rainbow
come back o’ my life
fickle mind is not stable
life without you is sketchy

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – soaring

⭐ I had to give a home visit last week due to the low number of children in our school and so I couldn’t publish or visit your blogs. I apologise.

The education system is suffering as children drop out of school. Knowing their problems, we are now trying to solve them.

Thank you for reading.

Stay Blessed! 💞

End of One Valentine #tankaprose

A good man died and went to heaven. The door to heaven was closed and two clocks hung on the door wall. One was showing the time on earth and the other was showing the time in heaven.

As soon as he reached the gates of heaven, he was welcomed by God’s clerk then God’s clerk warned him not to get any stuff inside. The good man said, ‘I didn’t get anything with me.’

God’s clerk said, ‘Please take the weight off your head.’ The good man asked, ‘What weight and how to lower it?

The clerk of God answered, ‘Give up all your hopes and aspirations.If you fall in love with someone, get rid of it. Lighten your mind, then the door of heaven will open for you.’

Clerk continued, ‘I want to read your whole life before God, then God will decide what to do with you, whether to send you to heaven or again to the same hell by giving rebirth.

A busy schedule
brought a sudden stop to life
severe heart attack
valuable life wasted
the end of one valentine
