Walking

Outside, in fresh air
Seems a million miles away
Hustle and bustle
Far behind us as we walk
Mother and daughter and dog

The side effects of Whole30

Herxing. Herxheimer
Damn you. Are you kidding me?
Die-off. Dying. Yes
If healthy is the outcome
Then I must go through the Herx

Tanka for the Twenty-first Century

9 Jun

Google Plus , LinkedIn
Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest
Flavor of the day
Post in spurts, then you forget
A social media fail

Let me out

5 Jun

Trapped in a space that’s
white, clean, pristine, clinical
Not what she’s used to
She aches to come home again
She should be with family

My child

4 Jun

Yes, she’s a loner
Wandering around solo
She texts. Sends pictures
She’s never really alone
We hang on her every word

Tanka-smitten

Tanka has become my “blockage-eradictor”. Get stuck? Write tanka!

I was inspired last week to listen to theĀ Psybient channel on Songza. I heard about it on a podcast, and I wish I could remember which one. The host was talking about using music for productivity and said that he found the tunes on the Psybient channel helped him focus. So I tried. And came to the same conclusion.

Heres my tanka about the Psybient channel …

psybient, chill out
tune in, turn on, drop out, k?
productivity
enhanced by psycho dub drop
getting work done at warp speed

I missed Tanka Tuesday!

28 May

I’ve been getting inspiration from The One-Minute Writer, and I missed yesterday’s prompt. Normally, I wouldn’t go back and do it, but I was intrigued by this art form known as Tanka!

I had heard of Haiku, but Tanka was a new one to me.

The topic of the Tuesday Tanka is “Cats”, so here’s mine:

She’s sleek and slinky
blending in when she wants to
shiny, grey shadow
curled up, minimal in form
her green eyes give her away
