Purple haze #etheree #tanka #haiku

your deepest shade

wistful September
darkness and light harmonize
Equinox is here

At year’s end, dusks and dawns flaunt lilac bliss
Hearts flutter in periwinkle dreams
The Purple haze descends on all
Our fortunes come full circle
Portends of the Seers-
Must we heed, or fear;
Cards that read dreams
Runestone dooms
Lost truths
Fate

do you feel destiny’s call?

Purple horizons
avian migrations come
Far-winter’s blessings

Forget not the many hues of each colour
Wondrous scintillating deceptions
Where mystery inflames beauty
And fantasy spoons reality
When the Purple haze has you
Smitten by its amethyst sheen
Blinded to its heliotrope tinge
A wistful time indeed
A time of comeuppance
When the end is in sight
and watchful things stalk your every step.

beginning or end?

the circle of life
where mine is not truly mine
yet comes back around
one’s curse, another’s blessing
equal darkness, equal light

At the end of the game, Kings and pawns go back in the same box.
