who has seen the wind?

we feel it,  do we not?
sometimes a gentle brush across our cheek
sometimes a forceful shove demanding our full attention

we hear it,  do we not?
sometimes a whisper as it rustles the leaves
sometimes a plaintive howl that sends shivers down our spines

we taste it,  do we not?
sometimes the moist welcome hint of  salt from the sea
sometimes the harsh,  acrid bite of  burning forests

we smell it,  do we not?
sometimes the breeze carries the scent of  rain and growing things

sometimes the wind brings us the odors of  death and decay

but who has seen the wind?
neither i nor you can say we have
though we can see the things it claims possession of
when in its rage more powerful does it become
and tears away everything it comes upon

“Blowin’  in the Wind”   Peter,  Paul  and  Mary

“Blowin’ in the Wind”  is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1962 and released on his album The Freewheelin’  Bob Dylan in 1963.  Although it has been described as a protest song,  it poses a series of rhetorical questions about peace,  war and freedom.  The refrain “The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind”  has been described as “impenetrably ambiguous:  either the answer is so obvious it is right in your face,  or the answer is as intangible as the wind”.

·ÌºÍ· as the wind blows chill…. {redux}

Wind God by Ogata Korin

·ºÌ€Íº·

as the wind blows chill
and the willow weeps

as day turns to night
and half  the world sleeps
.
º€º
.
as the sun and moon
chase each other ’round the sky

as the stars just watch
never wondering why
.
º€º
.
as time wanders by
because it can’t stand still

life doesn’t stop
and it never will
.
º€º
.
i turn in my grave
unnoticed by all

my death meant nothing
no one heeds my call
.
º€º
.
as the earth keeps turning
my soul now sleeps

as the wind blows chill
and the willow weeps

Post A Day

tanka

from One Stop Poetry Form ~

Today the standard form is generally noted as (in syllables) 5-7-5-7-7.

A tanka is not one poem, but two. It’s a combination of two poems, or thoughts, etc.  The first three lines are called  Kami-no-ku (upper poem). The last two lines of 7-7 is called Shim-no-ku, (lower poem). They are joined by that middle pivot line, called kakekotoba.

The kakekotobais a pivot or bridge between the two main poems.  It should be part of the upper verse AND the lower verse in thought or poetry.  The pivot line is both the last image and end of the upper verse as well as the first image and beginning of the lower verse.  Both poems, read divided…the top from the bottom, should be able to stand on its own.

(Tanka usually has no punctuation, but that varies.) A tanka usually  contains a Kigo which is a word that reveals the season without saying it.  In the example above, perhaps the ‘red maple’ gives a hint of the season.

This last unit of 7-7 is used as a repetition or summary of the top poem.  I think of this shim-no-ku more as a re-enforcement or continuation of the sentiment of the whole poem…..Read More
