imaginary garden with real toads April 21, 2013

@picture by Mama Zen









A warrior's song

wooden flute

beneath a full face



mysterious moon

ancient drum

shadows of the past



illuminated

wispy clouds

enchanted vision


author's' note: for the challenge I used the Kelly Lune - Three lines containing a syllabic count of 5-3-5 with a series of interlocking lunes.

  3. To dance and prance under the moon
    Could make one look like a loon
    But ritual ways
    Are all the craze
    I'll give no attitude
    If some want to dance around nude..LOL

    1. Helen,

      Thank you that is exactly what I was striving for the call of the ancient ones under a full moon. I enjoy studying ancient cultures and have a bit of history with the Iroquois.

  8. This, the second stanza, especially, spoke to me. I pictured the ancient Haida warriors from northern islands off the coast of British Columbia, and the two words "ancient drum" cause an answering thrum in my bloodstream.

  12. This poem really speaks to me. I feel such affinity with ancient cultures, who knew how to live upon - and with - the land. This poem is really beautiful!

  13. I love the second lune with its mysterious moon, ancient drum and shadows of the past. Saying so much more than the words themselves. I can feel the ancient beat through all three.
