This week, I finally found the time to write my poem for #TankaTuesday. The bathrooms are now a finished project! We even found time yesterday, to the paint the bare wood around the bottom of the deck. We hope to put up some plastic trellis around the base before summer’s end.
It was Yvette’s choice this week. She selected a form created by Gwen Plano called the 4-11, which is eleven lines of four syllables each.
NOTE: https://sodacoffee.com/syllables, the syllable counter we’ve used for years, now displays a 404 error page. In the past, they revamped the site and changed the address. I’m not sure if that is the case this time. So, use the syllable counter at How Many Syllables: https://www.howmanysyllables.com/syllable_counter/. Be aware that How Many Syllables sometimes is off in the count. Double check your syllable count.
Summer magic still shines—grab it! Dance with fireflies, waltz with fairies, tell ghost stories around the fire... bond together. Autumn hovers in the raindrops. Remember the summer magic. © Colleen M. Chesebro
I can’t believe we’re half way through August! Before you know it, summer will be a distant memory. Spend these last weeks with your family, enjoying time together. It’s all so precious. 💜
