Formation of swans
blaring advance, lift my lens
spectacle captured
ennui momentarily
broken – contemplate message.

(Tuesdays I borrow from Twitter @Vjknutson.  This time, it’s a tanka.  Image my own.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. Well, I know of three kinds – Mute, Tundra, and Trumpeter. Mute swans have been imported here to decorate our Stratford on Avon. Otherwise, I’m not sure they are part of our landscape typically.

  1. I love the title of this lovely and contemplative tanka. Clarion refers to a trumpet (like Trumpet Swans) and also to paying attention to something to contemplate. Excellent word choices. You made my heart sing/trumpet. 🙂
