The King is in the Altogether

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge

The wise see greatness
where the fool discerns nothing . . .

“See, how great I am!”

This ‘king’ is altogether
Wise as the day he was born

a second effort written in tanka form in response to this week’s RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #139 – “King” and “Day” and inspired by the song,’The King’s New Clothes’ (Burl Ives) from the film “Hans Christian Andersen” (1952) (Frank Loesser) – based on the 1837 children’s story “The Emperor’s New Clothes” by Hans Christian Andersen

All Hail the King!

Ruach, Blow Through Me

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge

Our world turns, time burns
The wind blows as it pleases
Ruach! Blow through me!

From post-classical Latin ruach or its etymon Hebrew rūăḥ, meaning breath, wind, spirit, spirit of the living being, (specifically) the spirit of God.

Joy’s River

Shame’s tears ebb and flow
Mercies stem sorrows’ dull tides –
Joy’s river runs through

Divine Waterspout

Vortex colours

Vortex e’er spinning
Energized water of life
Raising me upward
