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 GATHER and SOFT. I used COLLECT and SQUIDGY.
Years take their toll
Naked he collects his girth
sweating and squidgy
She sighs and turns out the light
smiling thinks of his brother
Okay so I never took it that seriously this week. Sorry Colleen, I shall try harder next time it’s been a long week…:)

Gives new meaning to the term “brotherly love” doesn’t it?
LOL! This is a marvelous Tanka. This is your voice so don’t hold that back! You know what I love most about this poem? It’s real. I can feel the man’s self consciousness and I can feel the woman desiring another… her brother in law. Wow. There is so much going on in this poem. EXCELLENT! ❤
Thanks so much means a lot Colleen!
You’re most welcome. ❤️
