Tanka Tuesday: Fantasy & Merry

A tanka for Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday


stars dance

the night into day

spinning dreams

from joy and hope

they leave music when they fade

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. Thanks! No, I didn’t see it either. I went to look, thought maybe she was away. I think it was because she missed my entry in the roundup so I didn’t get a pingback to approve.

      1. I missed you in the recap??? Holy crap! You mean writing two books at one time is finally causing me to crack up? I’m sorry. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      2. I wasn’t going to lodge a complaint, Colleen! I know you saw last week’s poem because you commentedโ€”that’s all that matters to me ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. I’ve been in such a rush. I’m so sorry. When I get back I promise to slow down. ๐Ÿ˜€

      4. LOL! That’s pretty much how it is. It’s hard living in the real world! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Jane, I love this Tanka poem! The image is glorious. I leave on vacation next Monday but will check in during the evenings. โค

    1. Thank you! Merril and I were right then, you are going to have a break ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great time and don’t worry about us. Just leave us the pots of paint and some colouring books and we’ll be fine ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. LOL! I’ve got the challenges scheduled so have fun. I need this vacation big-time! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hugs! โค
