#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRYCHALLENGE #2-31-05-22 #SHAREYOURDAY @ColleenChesebro #Kerf
Hi everyone! 🙂
Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which asks for us to create a syllabic poem based on our day.
You can find Colleen’s post HERE.
Carried down the river
Torrent of sudden flash flood
Float on my back, looking for the rainbow
The shock makes me shiver
This rain of pain isn’t good
Though what can I do but go with the flow
Sunshine all day forecast
Not out of control deluge
Knocked off my feet, which only goes to show
Good or bad, it won’t last
Plans can’t provide a refuge
Trust yourself and let your inner sun glow
Today, I chose a Kerf:
- 12 lines made up of 4 tercets;
- syllabic: 6/7/10 per line;
- rhymed: rhyme scheme abc abc dec dec.
Yesterday went somewhat awry. One thing happened that cascaded into another, and before I knew it, all plans were off. Amusingly, my day matched the weather. The morning started sunny, as forecast, then turned into heavy rain and flash floods. From an active start, I ended up needing to rest and take medication for a deluge of pain. By the evening, the sun had returned in its full brilliance … a gorgeous reminder of what can happen when we embrace the storm and go with the flow.
I hope you enjoyed today’s poetry. Have a lovely day! 🙂
