Haiku challenge: Question & Resolve

I’m taking a break from Twelfth century mysticism, for this tanka in response to Ronovan’s weekly prompt. It’s a question resolved so I’ve taken liberties with the prompt words.

I wrote this one with my eyes half-closed, and I realise it can be interpreted in several ways. I think the Oracle nudged it.


question in the sky

cloud-shaped, grey as charcoal

from a spent fire

marks on paper an image—

the future will be blue
