National Poetry Month: Series of Tanka poems

Shredded thoughts and dreams
combusts into fractured neurons
A maelstrom of pain
invigorated senses
illuminate the path home.


The sky splits open
and hail heralds the death cries
the fury of wind
rips and shreds the countryside
and lays bare our earths’ innards.


Harsh words penetrate
self lost in the halls of time
body forged in fire
words transform the soul and mind
but not all is left behind.


Fractal created by me summer of 2016. It’s a representation of the chaos of pain, and how we hide it all inside these confines of our demeanor, but sometimes it leaks free despite all our attempts to hold it at bay.
