Kerfe chose this week’s words. Remember, you can’t use the words. Instead, you must find synonyms to use in their place.

Transition & Harmony

This week for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka I have chosen to do a Gogyohka. It’s about confusing information, a huge part of our lives right now.

Muddled meanings, words unclear

Won’t bring us together here

Our enemy still lingers watching us

In this time of change, fear separates

Borders hastily drawn, no reunions yet.

    I love the political sides of this. While it can obviously be about Covid, it reminds me of the Mexican border situation and the splitting of families, too. Well done!

      Thank you, I was so upset by Boris’s darn waffle! Yes having read it could apply to many many things. I know we should not show our political feelings on our blogs especially Colleen’s but I had to have a virtual tantrum. Thank you 💜

    I agree about Boris. Stay alert! Idiot what does that even mean? Cross the road carefully?
