Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 130 #Synonyms Only

It’s the first Tuesday of the month so we can choose our own words this time. So welcome to Colleen the Fairy Whisperer Tuesday Tanka.

I have chosen to write a mirror Etheree about my friend. Natalie is blind and a real hero. She has a partner and two beautiful and clever children. Ruby, our retired guide dog, and I have the privilege of joining her and Quala, her guide dog on Qula’s Free exercise walks. The two words I have chosen are Unsighted and Belief.

Blind Faith

Trust

Is all

I ask for.

Never will I

Complain. I will learn.

Eighteen months training.

I always do my best

To help you at play and rest.

I am part of the family

Life without out me is a memory.

I’m your guide dog to help and set you free.

Trust

In her

I put my

Faith. She helps me.

Blind, I cannot see

Her presence sets me free.

She is with me everyday

We walk the children to the school.

You help me work and play, my best friend.

Quala and me together to the end .

*********
