The Study Of Wind (Tanka)

Continuing Colleen’s weekly challenge, here is a Tanka and a found image. I used synonyms of carol and vacation (because I took a small break). I used hymn and leaving.

Grass waves up to bob
Rolling past horizon’s nod
Hymn to the seasons
Gusty winds chant snow leaving
Fields bend, a boastful ballad

Scandalous (Poem)

Let them say what they will about us
Their kind thrives when it’s scandalous
Few abuse their right to be more wrong
Happily ignorant on what’s really going on
Vile rumors of what they wish to be true
But it burns me anyone could think this of you
Surrounded, hounded – smutty hens clucking away
This foul flock leaves droppings every place
Dirty minds can’t make up for what they lack inside
Their filth rolls off my back to blind my eyes
