Oracle – Tanka Tuesday

Crystal clear

Colleen has crafted a challenge to write an acrostic poem with a syllable count of 8, 9, or 10 syllables per line or a mixture of these syllable counts, and our choice of words are: MAGICAL, CHARM, SPECTRE, FANTASY, CONJURE, UNICORN, IMAGINATION, ORACLE, or MALEVOLENCE.

I am drawn to the word ORACLE

Now I donโ€™t have a choice

I have used a combination of 8, 9 and 10 syllables, in that order

Here goesโ€ฆ..

Opening and unravelling

Revealing the moments yet to come

Always the stark truth and never to please

Clear as a pure crystal it speaks

Lo behold – hear for what I am shown

Eyes of divine is there for me to see

Published by Echoes of the soul

I am a dreamer I weave tales in my mind I am connected to you through these words through this screen across the virtual world I and my tales within

  1. Accurately described, and I like that you included it isn’t always what we want to hear but we can trust it (my interpretation of what you wrote.)
