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 GREEN and PATIENCE I used VERDENT and SUFFERENCE.


Verdent and waiting

Her sufferenace nearing end

and cold chains released

Warm, I watch her slow brush strokes

bringing the landscape to life
