#Tanka 42 — Port

Ever in motion,
faceless, they come and they go,
clutching their mobiles,
the port a grey entity
where dreams begin and dreams end.

    1. Thank you, Shey 🙂 I’m in a wistful mood this week but, despite this, I’ve started to work on the second draft of my latest novel. The good news is that two months after putting it aside, it’s making me laugh, which is encouraging, as it’s meant to be funny in an offbeat way xxxx

      1. Sometimes you get a pleasant surprise when you go back to something to go over it and you know a lot of slog is done. yeah there’s diff slog but sometimes the pressure feels less xx

  1. A talented writer can write about anything and make it worth reading. You are a talented writer. You see things other don’t. You feel things and know how to translate those feelings into words. You have a gift, and those of us who are lucky enough to read your words are the recipients of your gift.

    So thank you!

    Wishing you a brilliant week, dear friend.

    1. Dearest Bill, what a lovely, heartwarming comment. I’m smiling and have happy tears in my eyes 🙂 You have definitely contributed big-time to me having a brilliant week. Thank you so much for your praise and encouragement. It has coincided with me getting my writing mojo back, so couldn’t have come at a better time in reinforcing that I should never give up writing.

      Wishing you a fabulously creative week.



  2. Nice Tanka! Ports are wonderful places… places where old dreams die and new dreams emerge…. Love the image it creates in my mind. BTW, Like you, I just started working on a new novel in my ‘Hope Ranch’ Series.


  3. Lovely, Sarah, I am not a stranger to the world of port and can tell you conveyed the atmosphere 🙂 Sorry I have been away for too long, and now returning to blogging on a slow pace. It will take some time…

    1. Thank you, Inese 🙂 How wonderful to see you back! I was afraid you’d left the world of blogging forever. I’ve been rather intermittent with blogging myself for the last few months, as have felt below par both physically and emotionally. Am on the mend now, so hope to get back into the swing of things in September. Will try to visit your blog sometime this week x

      1. Thanks, Inese 🙂 I’m getting there … slowly. Wishing you all the best for whatever it is you’re doing in September, and how very organised of you to get two posts ready in advance!

      2. Thank you Sarah! I have to organise the posts as I already missed almost 6 months, and it is not good for the blog 😦 I might close the comments though as I won’t be able to reply. I am going to see my granddaughters, so this time my absence has a nice reason 🙂 Please take care of yourself. Life is good and worth to keep.
