#Tanka: Finding Clarity

🌟

Querent and Seer

Spoken and unspoken words

Sent out, sent up – heard!

Words whispered by candle’s glow

Answers shuffled like cards, draw

🌟

Seeker and Finder

Listen close and look within

What is seen and heard?

Observation paints this tale

Clarity rests like dew drops

🌟

    Love both perspectives here. I had to read them more than once and was pleasantly surprised to see the first one was a rallying cry and the second one an introspective question. Marvellous use of the form on both counts πŸ™‚

    Clarity has to be worked for, to see 10 more feet in fog, you have to move forward 10 feet.

    Action is necessary to see clearer.

    I love clarity, it brightens up life.
    Thanks for sharing πŸ˜„
