Yarn (Etheree Poem)

barren yard
lavishly spread
spools of twine pulled tight
disguising my sound threads
rigorous patterns alight
secured strings wound up as trip lines
bitter tension hides before your eyes
ensnaring wayfarers in knotty yarn

For Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge: Cold & Safe, #SynonymsOnly.

I’m using the primary synonyms bitter (for cold) and secured (for safe), and secondary related words of rigorous and sound.
