The Prophecy – A Tanka

Once again for my Tanka challenge, I kept the prompt words of eyes and shelter. Both words have many connotations and can change the meaning of your Tanka poetry in numerous ways. By the way, please link your Tanka to the prompt post found here.

Hooded eyes conceal –

a mute prophecy of death

sheltered in evil.

The Fairy Whisperer knows

the swamp takes care of their own.

It’s getting closer to the release date of The Heart Stone Chronicles – The Swamp Fairy. Have I piqued your interest?



Thanks for stopping by…
