Pawed over with care
Diversions, fresh starts, my story
The Map of my life
Sometimes in total tatters
Sometimes it’s almost perfect

This is a Tanka for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge.

    You said it perfectly, Willowdot. Sometimes perfect, sometimes in tatters. Life is unpredictable and interesting every minute.
