Tanka Tuesday: Simply peace

For Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday. The prompt words are pretty grim, Hate and Prideβ€”time for antonyms and synonyms.

south field

Tree-sway, leaf-flutter,

shade dapples play hide and seek

in the restless wind.

Peace breathes simple songs here, and

I feel no man made darkness.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. It’s a soullessness, every man for himself. The anonymity of the city makes it easier to be yourself and not be bound by convention, but it also makes it easier to mess the place up with impunity.

    1. The way I see it, the darkness in nature is inevitable, like violent death or the change of the seasons. We make our own darkness with our conflicts and hatreds that just don’t exist outside human society.

      1. Death, being eaten or dying of starvation, sickness, a broken leg etc is part of nature. Animals and trees don’t have medicine or social security, but neither do they purposely destroy, maim, enslave, exploit and massacre. We’re tops at all that.

    I endorse every word, my sentiments too.
