Weekly #Tanka challenge

Katja has written a splendid triple Tanka that breathes magic. Lovely! ❤

Katja Rammer

It’s time for this week’s installment of Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge. You can see last week’s Tanka here. The prompt words for this week are: myth and write.

I had started on a little something about death and sorrow and loss, but then I went on an early hike with my husband yesterday.  The lovely morning in the woods inspired the following triple Tanka instead. I’ve no idea if the concept of a triple Tanka even exists, but I found I was not done with the poem after one stanza, so I just added two more. Hope you enjoy it—and the picture my husband took, too. The picture was taken on the morning of January, 27th on our way to the ruins of Castle Wegelnburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany on the border to France.

Whatever ails this platform, I hope it corrects itself soon. Finally, I've recreated my creative endeavor for my weekly poetry challenge. I've used delight for "play," and … Continue reading “My Little Bit of Heaven,” A #Tanka
