My Response to the Prompt:

.

spring starts
awakening beneath snow
evening shadows fall
empty barn ~ memories stirred
bittersweet ~ life’s cycle

For Ida and Angel

Angel was the pet cow of  Ida and her grandchildren.

Passerbys would stop and pet Angel and feed her treats.

Angel recently passed away with Ida at her side as it

became obvious the time to leave was near.

RIP Angel

Kathabela Wilson, Prompt

Friday, March 20, 2015 prompt: healing the earth, healing ourselves
(All the broken things, debris,difficulties, cultural discord, how to bring a unity,
a healing with personal powers.
We have been healing these days, especially Rick,
but healing by a sensitive watchfulness.
If you look inside you can read the clouds
on x-rays as well as the sky,
see those clouds
“you are making more bones”
that is what the surgeon says.
And so like the earth and its revitalization,
we heal ourselves, the inner globes that we are,
without even trying, letting time patience,
and sensitivity succeed.
.
What do you see as healing in the earth this world, and your own being, and how to say it in your tanka?)

Kathabela Wilson prompt, Tanka Poets on Site

March 18, 2015 tanka prompt: rounded edges, “struggle against the straight line”

.

(Our poet friend Joan Stern

went on a trip to Antarctica,

and on the way back she stopped in Uraguay recently.

She came home with a signed print by Vilaro,

who designed many beautiful environments,

tileworks

and paintings.

.

He mentions his

“lifelong struggle against the straight line.”

Compared to Gaudi in his flowing,

unusual conceptions,

the organic nature

of the ebb and flow of shapes and motion

seems natural.

.

What rough edges have you smoothed,

corners, rounded?

.

How have you “struggled against the straight line”

in your work,

art,

psychology?)

.'March 18 prompt:  rounded edges, "struggle against the straight line" (Paez Vilaro)'

Back in the day
taboo to see tattoos
covered with bandage
faded design from her youth
she couldn’t understand
.
for Eileen, red headed angel
celebrating St Paddy’s Day
with heavenly beer and poker
.
TPOS prompt: tattoo
