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

Close To You …#poetry

When you are not around,
I talk to you.
Looking at you in the mirror
of imagination,
I smile at you.

Communicating with you
without words,
I get lost in you,
so sometimes
words fall short.

Dusk reminds me of you
and the surreal image of yours
comes in front of me
and I think
I am very close to you

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.

Witness Our Love..#Poetry #haiku

Let’s go to a lonely
and cold place
faraway
in the woods,
where there will be
no sorrow, no tears,
only love
and affection.

Where a layer
of melted ice
can be seen
on the ground.
As the air warms up
and the trees begin to bloom,
spring arrives.

A rough track
with a wooden fence
on both sides
will take us to a cottage
in the woods,
where we will
witness our love.

Revolt in Russia
peasants boycott ancient dance
revival of spring

For The Survival…#poetry

I didn’t understand
how to use a protractor
in the ‘Angles and Triangles’ lesson,
so I asked my sir to explain again.

Sir told me to wait a while
after school because he didn’t want
to waste his period.

I sat in the classroom.
Sir came
and started touching my fingers
instead of teaching me
geometric figures.

He deliberately dropped
the chalk
and told me to take it off
and he started looking
at my body curves.

I was growing physically
and mentally,
what was my mistake?
Sir was well educated and mature,
didn’t he understand his mistake?

Why do we girls
have to face such social problems
when we grow up?
As we girls get older,
why do their eyes scan us?

Even if they have girls
of our age,
why do they sow thorns
in the path of other girls
by making their daughter’s life bearable.

I want to tell everyone,
let all the girls live
their lives their way.
Let’s get together
for the Survival of our daughters
and other girls.
