Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday: GROW and HONOUR

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 GROW and HONOUR. I used NURTURE and TRIBUTE.

Gold fingers nurture

and coax to life once again

with beauty tributes

to those who have gone before

and birth those then to follow
