A Garland Cinquain
unfold chakra petals you'll start to recognize where you've been & where you're going third eye insight a bridge between right and left hemispheres; heaven and earth; your life and death transform the night expands over people and the Divine a deep part of you awakens wisdom lower into higher spiritual currents caution grounds humanity on earth rooted shatter your illusions consciously create life experience "Aha" moments Ajna unfold the bridge between yourself and the Divine caution grounds humanity on earth Ajna
The above garland cinquain was written for Colleen M. Chesebro’s ‘Tanka Tuesday’ prompt: Poets were prompted to write syllabic poems inspired by a chakra color of their choice. I chose the color ‘indigo’.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
