WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
This weeks theme is:
What is tradition? By definition, tradition is:
- The passing down of elements of a culture from generation to generation, especially by oral communication.
- A mode of thought or behaviour followed by a people continuously from generation to generation; a custom or usage.
Colleen said. “I consider all of you to be part of my poetic family, so let’s create a huge collaborative garland cinquain (2/4/6/8/2) sequence of poetry that connects to each other like a garland of poetry wrapped around a holiday tree.”
Christmas Eve shopping done.
One the bus, we’re all talking fun.
Warm house and Dad
Hot cuppa can’t be bad.
Fir tree waits for its festive garb.
Make paper chains
Huddling around the fire.
Singing carols,like a choir
Mum in kitchen
The smell is delicious.
Mince pies by the dozen, tempt us
Off to church they
All go, Mum and I dress the tree.
It’ll be ready when they return
Hand down, decorating
The hearth and tree, cosy, cooking.
