Butterfly Cinquain 10

7 September, 2016
mysteries are
dark but not always as
deathly as they seem; fragrant soil
with potential for life as worms
bring oxygen into
darkness – seeds live

cinquain – 12

naked twiglets
scratch grey sky which leaks
cold wind and falling water; dark

tanka 9

1 September, 2015
shades of light and gloom
colours cover the blankness
of dark memory
solid brightness fills vision
eases achingness and pain
I wrote this tanka while I was recovering from open surgery last year…

tanka 5

18 August, 2015
ugly mystery
transforms to transparent wings
red dragonfly soars
skims still, dark surface of womb
seeks food, a mate and sunlight

Wednesday Words – Lynds Jennings

13 May, 2015
Last year I published a series of Wednesday Words about Inspiration. You can find the four people I featured if you click on the dragonscales above to get back to the main page and look on the right hand side for Allies.
Lynds Jennings submitted some words about Inspiration, but, due to being ill with cancer and having chemotherapy, I didn’t find the email until earlier this year. Lynds had some really encouraging and inspiring words for me during the dark time of chemotherapy. I tried the visualisations, as Lynds suggested. I imagined myself healed and whole, dancing to energetic music. And guess what? It really helped, particularly on those days when I was so tired, I couldn’t even read.
Lynds is a Textile Artist, Silk Painter and a Writer of Small Pictures. If you’d like to find inspiration in pictures and words, please visit Dragonsilk.
And here is why Lynds was inspired to start writing…
“I had never thought to write. But then I began to look for joy in a darker day, to find brightness, silver linings in grey clouds. And to try to describe those moments as a picture in words. Precious.”
Thank you, Lynds, for your encouragement and for your delightful pictures and words at Dragonsilk.
