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…

Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday – Join in the fun!
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.
Well done! I loved it, Marje! And, yes! Your words ring true to me also! <3
Thank you Colleen. 🙂
Lol-I think the tanka turned out nicely 🙂
Thank you Samantha, I really enjoy poetry but don’t consider myself to be a poet so your kind words are very encouraging. 🙂
I really liked it 🙂 I don’t often write poetry…too much to say!
Yes poetry is tricky! But fun. 🙂
