National Poetry Month: Sequence of Tanka Inspired by Break My Fucking Sky’s Album Final Breath

Drift on winds of time
pulsating drone spears the heart
A tremble of notes
Sprinkled atop harmony
wraps around the panicked mind.

.

Feet crunch broken rocks
gloved hands release the stairway
alien landscape
ripples with mirages, heat
above the star gleams blood red.

.

Hurricane of pain
stabs the mind, body with fire
energy zaps through
body freezes with a snap
My breaths hurtle in a race.

.

Crescendo vibrates
Rise of melody in tune
with the soaring mind
Splendor of a red-hue world
Rapture in a dark blue sea.

Fractal created by myself in Apophysis 7.x. I decided upon this one because of the sense of otherworldly vibe it gave me.

By Aibird

Open the door, step inside. Here you find a forest, teeming with animals and birds, which sweeps up the sides of snow-capped mountains. Here in the small pocket of beauty, one finds the essence of my soul. A writer at heart, I delve deep into the finer details of humanity's spirit, and seek to share with others what gems I uncover. I find life exciting and full of interesting surprises, and despite the great pain that often confronts me, I persevere with the joy in my heart still bubbling, and the light of my soul still aflame. There is a time and a place to introspect one's self, but often enough it is best to not look back in regret, but leap forward in the present toward the achievement of one's deepest dreams. I am a wanderer. An explorer. One place cannot contain me for long, but to my friends and family, I remain loyal, for love is not bound by time nor place. Once cultivated and nourished continuously, it binds people together on a journey through the unknown reaches of life.
