Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday: CHARM and TIME

It’s something I guess

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 CHARM and TIME.  I used COAX and AGE.

Coaxed from cold rich earth

with promise of golden clothes


she smiles and walks forth

And across the land she glides

light after an age of dark

  1. Ohhh, this was very good, Michael. Make sure to read the challenge post tomorrow. The new cutoff is Sunday noon, Denver USA time. I do a recap on Monday, where starting next week, you will be able to vote for your favorite poem. I’ll add you to the recap now. ❤

  3. Well Tuesday is a particularly serious day it’s not really made for shenanigans or tomfoolery I think it was Douglas Adams who said that 2 o’clock on a Tuesday was the long dark teatime of the soul and as much as I have tried to live on up Tuesdays I find myself failing and therefore submit to the power of the japanese poetry
