A hidden place photo beachPuertoNuevo_zps3aae99e3.jpg
Along the beach, Puerto Nuevo, Baja California Norte, México

crystal clear sunlight
reflects all colors in the mirror—
shadow of a dragon

huddling in a seaside cave
Jonah hides himself from God

  2. Ah, one of my favorite places and what a terrific capture for the day!! Have a fun, beautiful weekend!!

  3. what a great tanka.. really weaving two thoughts together into a unity..

  4. I am honored that you’ve used my ‘crystal’-haiku to write this wonderful Tan Renga … thank you mmt.

  11. mystickuheli

    In few words you said so many things… what a tanka! I love it.

  12. If you’re going to hide from God, I suppose a seaside cave is as good a place as any!

  13. Very nice. I like how you linked dragon (or perhaps it is me) with Jonah’s whale.
    Sometimes things larger than us can be scary. Both Absence and Presence.

    May we both continue to enjoy dancing rainbows 🙂

      I think the linking of dragon with whale (although no whale is mentioned) must have been subconscious. I had a difficult time with this prompt. Hence, my “borrowing” of Kristjaan’s haiku to make into a tan renga!

        Interesting because today’s prompt says that dragons can transform into anything… even I am guessing whales.

          Oops! I confess that I didn’t read the whole prompt! 😉

          • Yesterdays or today’s? Today’s is Turtle. 🙂
            Sometime time gets the better of us. National Poetry Month was fun but exhausting… I still have visits to catch up on.
            But I figured I’d better show my ‘face’ occasionally before it was thought that I might be ‘rude’ for not returning any visits.

            “Crystal” was yesterday. Don’t exhaust yourself!

          • I end up reading the new CD and writing my verse before the post is open. I was just comparing your Crystal piece to the information I found in Today’s Turtle.

            What’s a little exhaustion? Hubby had business calls all throughout the night and my little ones are due to arrive any moment. Sometimes we have to operate on whatever sleep we can snag 🙂

            Be well, Jules

            Sleep? What’s sleep? 😉

          • Hum…that funny thing at day or night when you dream – lose some consciousness for a bit 😉

          • magicalmysticalteacher

            But only a bit! 😉
