it is a brave step
withdrawn from a chance outside
that starts at my door
a walking deluge ensues
minting faces in broad snow
For Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 118, #SynonymsOnly – this week’ prompt words were Begin & Fresh, so I selected to use Start and Mint in a Tanka.

Orange burning round
Guiding worn geese fleeing east
Reflecting soft sounds
Weary fish scuttle beneath
Blue waves drag dreary sun down

This is my attempt at Tanka poetry (5-7-5-7-7) so I may have taken liberties with the style, but I had a lot of fun with this prompt from Kiwinana: #OctPoWriMo – Day 10 – #Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 117 – Sunset & Theme
