“The Cure,” A Tanka

Welcome to my contribution to my Weekly Poetry Challenge, where you can write your own Haiku, Tanka, or Haibun using the prompt words of “soar and wait.”

The words were perfect for me this week. I feel like I am undertaking a new journey – letting go of the old and venturing into some kind of new territory. A scary but promising undertaking. I know I am ready to move on.

Knotted up in pain –
my anguish waits to abate,
so my heart can soar.
Healing energy explodes
bathing me in crystal light.

    1. I had to let go of old energy that hurt badly. It was hard but I think I am on the mend. Some of those feelings we drag around hurt for too long. Hugs and love, Judy. ❤

  1. Colleen, I am sorry to hear you’ve had so much anguish and am delighted things are better. Your tanka speaks so eloquently of moving from the dark and into the light.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I always say sometimes we must have some bad things happen so that we can what the good things are. Hugs my friend. ❤
