Tanka Tuesday.

It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Word Crafters, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you! This opportunity only happens once a month!

Cold, night thoughts.

The moonlight
Silver and so cold
Hopes fleeting
Frost growing
The darkness enfolds us both
We must just survive.

This is part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka. This week I chose to do a single stanza Shadorma.

    OK, now I have to research what a Shandorma is. I love it, though.

    A poignant tanka poem, Willow. It feels like it’s all about survival, doesn’t it? Excellent! ❤

    I said tanka… it’s a shadorma… I’ve been book editing so I don’t know which way is up. LOL! ❤
