Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday: GATHER and SOFT

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…:)
