Tanka Tuesday by Colleen Chesbro

Spiritual Darkness

The Catholic religion has a term called Spiritual Darkness.  NOT depression, in truth, it makes your Faith stronger. The best example I can think of when a mother is teaching her child how to walk she holds the child up for a while, then comes the time she lets go, to guide and strengthen showing how strong he/she is. The mother is there just in case he or she falls.

This is why we experience this feeling of abandonment at times.

My post here is an acceptance of Colleen Chesebro Challenge Tanka Poetry; her challenge is to use the synonyms for the words “Dry and Wet” —

Oh my thirsty soul
petitions grace from above
Spiritual test
sprinkle me end this rupture
pray I flee this harsh desert


My watercolor painting of years ago
