Colleen’s prompt words this week for Tanka Tuesday are Craft and Rise – (I used soar instead of rise.)
I thought I’d apply Colleen’s two prompt words to the act of writing itself. Without a doubt, all my blogging/writer friends will know just how consuming and frustrating writing can be! Perfection is desirable but so difficult to achieve! To succeed in getting the perfect words on the page is a bit like trying to capture the ebb and flow of the oceans. Sometimes you hit moments of perfection but mostly you’re fighting the tide of your own demons, the depth of your imagination, and how far your final words may take you.
So with that in mind, this is my Tanka for this week…
#Tanka Tuesday, #micropoetry, #poetry, #5lines
Phew, it took me ages to write my Tanka this week! My words were buried in the sand at the bottom of the ocean but finally, I managed to coax them up to the surface.
I do hope my Tanka inspires you. Perhaps one day that masterpiece might just reach your shore!
Keep on writing!
Bye for now.
