“Home” – Tan Renga

 

Written for the Carpe Diem Challenge # 56:    write a Tan Renga.

Tan Renga is a two stanza poem with 5-7-5 and 7-7 syllables (5-7-5-7-7).  Unlike a Tanka written by one poet, Tan Renga is written by two.  Poet One writes the  5-7-5 and Poet Two completes 7-7.

Original Poet:   jazzytower of thoughts and entanglements

winding through past life
foreign tongues absorbed in dreams
sense of home prevails

[ ... ] your stanza ??????

~~~~~

winding through past life
foreign tongues absorbed in dreams
sense of home prevails
seven sisters harmonize
‘neath archangels widespread wings

“A Departed Soul”

On raven’s wing
O’er sea of tranquility
Flight of her spirit

∴∴∴

A departed soul
Ascends with flaming sunrise
Dewdrops dry swiftly

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we are? Even if we discount the material aspects and consider the more spiritual facet, don’t we know of those who seem more at peace, more aware or living in the moment. Even when we do manage to feel a strong sense of self-esteem or self-confidence, we are not able to consistently hold on to it. For most, our sense of self-worth bounces around like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling strongly tied with our latest success or failure.

In an effort to eliminate labeling ourselves as “good” or “bad”, and clearly accept ourselves with an open heart … to treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we would show to a good friend … I would like to incorporate more self-compassion and self-kindess in my life.

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday … a spin-off of the suspended Occupy Blogosphere started by Amy of SoulDipper.

If any of my readers are interested in joining the nurturing, I applaud and welcome you to do so … the more the merrier!!

Delilah – Michelle’s Weekly Pet


michelle's weekly 60 - Delilah

 Delilah
An elderly and tired spirit

I attended an Earth Medicine Energy Retreat this past weekend in Mt. Ida, Arkansas.  Our rental agent graciously showed us around her personal property prior to the beginning of the weekend fun.   Delilah lives with her.  She is a three (3) – legged spirit in a very tired 12 yr Lab – Grand Pyrenees mix body.   Her eyes spoke volumes.   Sadly, I do not expect she will make winter in her Lake Oauchita area home.
