Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday: Renew and Refresh

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 RENEW and REFRESH.  I used AWAKEN and RESTORE.


Golden her embrace

and with warmth does hearts restore

embers awakens

yet in her passing cold creeps

and once more restores her reign
