Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday: CHARM and TIME

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
