Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday: New & Experience

Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday

I don’t take many things seriously as you probably know but I am going to make a concerted effort to do Colleen’s challenges properly when I do them.  I have scant regard for the correct use of haiku and tanka and often do such beastly things to them but I think it is also important to show appreciation for the little blighters because they are so fabulous when done right.

This week the challenge was to use synonyms for GUIDE and DESTINATION.  I used MAP then STEER and INTENTION then DESIGN.  And its about change so that is another box ticked, and it is in the first person kind of maybe so I am thinking I have the structure and subject just about nailed if nothing else.

A path less travelled

raw emotions unchartedn

no map or compass

No intention or outcome

passenger to circumstance


Heart, fragile design

it races headlong unchecked

wildly, no steer

Until rest, satisfaction

contented at journeys end
