Sketch Artwork by Christine Tabaka

The dawn of time
Dragons and angels collide into
fiery earth

Winter bare trees
Give the illusion of
Black Spanish lace

Sleepless night
Moonless sky fills room
Eternal darkness

Abandoned seashore
Evening tide looks back to see
Footprints in the sand

Lost love
Tears melt into night

Brilliant orange sun
Sinks below horizon
Swallowed by ocean

June dandelions
Faeries dance on air
Filling wishes

Ships at sea
Guide their journey home
By night stars

Cool morning walk
the forest opens its arms
With solitude

Shredded dreams
My poems are now
Paper snow

Gypsy blood
Fire flows in her veins
Dancing forever

Trees in summer
Full of melodic sounds
Avian serenade

A rainy spring day
World reflected in a puddle
Ripples grow outward

a summer meadow

stain glass windows catch the sun
on dragonfly wings

floats on a breeze
of summer dresses

wind in trees
leaves dance to
a grand ballet
august ocean
warm current caresses

like liquid silk
