Note:1  Indigo is the color of the deep midnight sky.
It can have a negative effect when used during a
depressed state, because it will deepen the mood  -   Chev

Crept out on the sly
Felt bothered with no reasons
Feeling down, depressed 
Foul weather had an impact  
Some minor irritations 

Firmly unwound self
Distractions had some effects
Face it with intent
Just resolve to overcome
Strength of purpose won the day

Note: 2  The tanka is made outwardly strong
and dark to counter the depressed elements
inherent in the color indigo

For Chev's CARPE DIEM Theme week #2
color your life indigo 


  1. Have to push through some days to make it through the maze

  2. Purple is a favorite color in our family. I am also keen on pink. Good to know it can deepen depression. I have a family member who battles that malady and loooves purple. However, it makes me feel happy. I love all colors though, even lonely orange.

  3. Perfect description of the indigo moods!

  4. Very well written I like how you have tried to bring contrast into these tanka. Awesome.
