Colleen’s Weekly Tuesday Tanka. 7/Jan/20

It’s the first of the month here at Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka and you know what that means! Poets, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you!

Well as it is my choice I have decided to write a Tanka on the promise of Spring. A play on Hope Springs Eternal.

Brave Start.

Bare almost extinct

Tired, at the old year’s ending.

In hibernation

Nature’s spring hope’s eternal

New life giving life to all

She threw him into the mix, a mistake she never managed to fix.

Laying a trail…

Dreams can come true.

I pulled the camper-van into the parking spot and woke my companion. While he set about making coffee in the snazzy little kitchen, I rummaged in the storage compartment for the tool kit and another sign.
