Written in response to Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday, #TasteTheRainbow Challenge.

the rain-drenched landscapes
dust settled down, washed away
their colours appear
vivid and layered with nature
and some rainbow promises

someday when shadows
of the past washes away
all that remains are
beautiful tinges of hope
shoots of life in strengths of jade


A tanka poem, written in response to Colleen’s #tastetherainbow challenge.

seashells, each unique
just like people, tell stories
in many colors
shapes and sizes, though we share
the same blue sky and blue sea
