“Searching for the Magic, A Double-Tanka

Life is likea cup of tea

This week for my Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge, I used alter for change, and resisting for deny.

In the early hours—
before dawn’s pink light explodes,
I alter my view
of the cosmos in my mind
resisting a mundane life.

Searching for magic
amongst all the disasters
thrown at me daily—
finding the humor inside,
by learning to love myself.

          They are working on adding the new Gutenberg editor. It’s going to be a mess! 😂💜

      Thanks, Sis. These poems tumbled out of me yesterday. I like to think of it as “soul talk.” <3

          It’s inspiration and creativity all wrapped up in emotions. Poetry is perfect for the empathic soul. <3
