An Invitation To Faith – Choka Poem

The Choka (長歌 long poem) is:

  1. a narrative.
  2. syllabic. Composed of any number of couplets made up of alternating 5-7 onji (sound syllables) per line. In English we can only treat the onji as a syllable.
  3. unrhymed.
  4. concluded by a hanka, an envoy in the form of the waka, 31 onji or sound syllables in 5 lines with 5-7-5-7-7. “han” meaning repetition, the hanka is to summarize the Choka. The word tanka is often substituted for hanka or waka (they are all rooted in the same 31 syllable, 5 line form, their root seems to make them interchangeable with only subtle differences to separate them.)  Poetry Magnum Opus.

MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt – Train Ticket – For today’s prompt you are going on a train ride. Choose either the journey itself as your focus (a classic mystery/crime drama to solve for example) or the destination. The train need not be of this reality and therefore it can take you anywhere including the after life! As to how you came by the train ticket that too can have mysterious origins. 

train ticket arrives

from whence it came is unknown

intrigued to accept

ride is pre-reserved

date and time already booked

today, time is now

*

anxiously I hesitate

remember to breathe

destination is unknown

note with ticket says

board with faith don’t ask questions

again I pause, breathe

then step aboard waiting train

fear, not an option

train unseen by human eyes

*

unscabbed eyes awake

a new understanding dawns

solid foundation

that grew from a mustard seed

believing without seeing

Truly Awakened

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #58:  Just When I Thought… – Life seldom unfolds in straight lines. It’s not necessary to repeat the prompt phrase, but this week let’s think about the times when life has turned an abrupt corner, or caught us off guard.  

Light Motiffs II Thursday Inspiration 14 -This week’s theme is fragile and the picture is below.

Thursday Inspiration

Just when I thought this heart

could not become any more fragile

the Hand that holds it breaks

this heart to shatter into depths

of a Love that I never knew

could be so rooted to contain…

Mitchell Falls - in the Kimberly region (northeast of Perth, kind of nowhere)

Loving and forgiving beyond

heights, lengths, and widths

I never desired to go beyond…

just when I thought is when

I became truly awakened.

Silent Presence

Written In Response To:

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #57: Presence – This week, please join me in contemplating ‘presence’.  It’s easy to participate – just create a post on the topic on your own site and link it up to this one.

Sue Vincent Thursday Photo Prompt:  Clarity #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 24th July and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

Clarity…sometimes the soul aches

to receive it thus banishing the confusion

yet, at times nothing is heard 

in that moment one awakens

to realize a deeper maturity of Spirit

the Presence of Grace is often silent…

clarifying all confusion.
