Gloom and doom slayer. Born of man, it lights the night. Its name? 'Smile, the blind'. And though it sees not itself, It sees and feels its magic. ❤Aweni

Jungli

No fuss, frills, or trims Jungli in walk, talk and dreams Hiss, kiss, same to her Untamed, she tames land and sea Her nature is nature's best. ©Aweni Adams September 2019 This was written and illustrated in response to Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday poetry challenge.

May light be yours

O'er you may be gloom Tears may drip, but 'twill be fine Like stars in the night Daintly hanging up above Let hope shine through the dark ❤Aweni It's international widow's day. Give yourself the chance to find the light again. It may be hard, but please hang in there. ❤Aweni
