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
