#TANKATUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 236, #THEMEPROMPT

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

It’s the fourth week of the month! Are you ready for a theme prompt? Donna Matthews from D J Ranch.org last month’s challenge picked the theme:

I chose to write a Tanka and I used a photo of my grandchildren, taken by my daughter in law.

This month’s theme is: Expedition.

during life’s journey
many a slip halts our quest
as we travel forth.
the road we take is unknown
an Expedition.

This is part of Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka.

    When I think of expeditions… I think of those early map makers that had so much land or sea to explore. And too of the weather that ‘slipped’ them up. 😀

    How some places where named or claimed… for other countries.
