Following Colleen’s instructions on how to form a tanka poem, I decided to give it a try. Bearing in mind I have never written one before, I might have missed the mark slightly, so it might not be correct!
My poem is based on my weekend morning ritual:
Waking to the sounds of my children
Their bodies flying onto my bed and their constant chatter
The disruption of my dreams and peaceful state to one of full alertness
The warmth emanating from being near their enthusiasm so early in the morning.
And here is the product of my ramblings…
Eager voices breaking peace
Chasing the morning
Like birds departing still lakes
Awakening the new day
Give it a try and tag me in if you do.
Have a great day.
