Nature Of A Story

a seed is planted,

nurtured by soil's caress

until stories grow.

water's soft healing

can cut through steel at high speeds.

kind words are currents.

ideas move like clouds:

some drift away in fragments,

while others find shape.

stories can ignite

from pages or sparks between

friends and bonfires.

    Some wonderful words in these nature driven Senryū and a well deserved Top Story that I missed

  • Sonia Heidi Unruh10 months ago

    Brilliant metaphors. The third verse particularly resonated with me- that early stage of developing a story idea when you're not sure if it will dissipate or form into something definite. Well done.

    Wow ...very elegant. Love the gentle vibe it stirs. Also. NICE to see an example of how it looks with all 4 in one piece. I did all mine separate pieces. Wondered how it'd look as 1... (Thought it would feel cluttered) Wasn't sure Enjoyed your work!
