Here is Colleen Chesebro’s TANKA TUESDAY WEEKLY POETRY CHALLENGE: POET’S CHOICE #237!
We have blue lights reflecting off the trees next to the back deck. It’s a spectacular combination of the twinkling stars above and the bugs that fly through the light beams that add to the night show!
This is a picture I took while laying on my lounge chair stargazing. It was the inspiration for the Tanka Poem below.
retreats into the forest
beneath stars soft glow
Brilliant blue beams decorate
my piece of eternal night

Denise, what are the blue lights from? I’m stunned at the spectacular view you have. This is a lovely, peaceful tanka poem. Excellent! <3
Thank you, Colleen 🙂 It is an amazing spot to just be and look at our small slice of the stars.
I’m not sure what it’s called, but you plug it in and it has a stake to go into the dirt. It shines out a blue light that looks like little stars in the trees. My husband says it reminds him of Disneyland… lol.
Yes, we are very lucky to be surrounded by such beauty. xo
Oh, that sounds so cool! I suppose the blue light does not draw the bugs either? Lovely spot to dream up more poetry, Denise. <3
I don’t see a lot of bugs at the light but when they fly through the beams it’s glittery or flashy. Yes, the perfect spot to let the words find me 🙂 xo
Wonderful tanka, Denise. I love that last line. Fabulous.
Thank you, Diana 🙂 Happy that last line captured your attention! xo
