Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday: DANCE and COMMAND

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 DANCE and COMMAND.  I used BALLET and DIRECT.


Golden rays command

and direct verdent ballet

to it’s wistful tune

And breathless,  new eyes look on

enraptured by her beauty
