Drawing Blanks (Etheree)

at
the tip
of pencil
leaning over
my unfurnished words
soaring to embrace her
emptiness grips this paper
forlorn delights of torn graphite
splinters collide into tender lines
despondent mischief in a new year’s eyes

2019


For Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 117, “Poet’s Choice of Words” I have selected to use synonyms for hopeless and shred – so I used despondent and forlorn, and also torn and splinters.
