Five Tanka: Manifestation

Five Tanka: Manifestation

one’s created intention
reflections of self.
Explained meaning of being
the cart is before the horse.

Identifying –
sucked into old behavior
valuing the known.
Watching observer’s reactions
clear view of what’s going on.

Dividing apart
wholeness is no longer seen
we see what we want.
Identified with nothingness
attraction no longer held.

Winter approaches
welcomed rest after Summer
outside chaos calmed.
Space between relationships
inward focus – source of growth.

Being – relating
expressing self to what turns up
growing – evolving.
Reflecting light through senses
seeing the stars in the sky.
