Day 11 – Velvet Petals (Tanka)

Today’s prompt: Today we were prompted by NaPoWriMo to write a Tanka, which is a verse with the following syllable count per line 5-7-5-7-7. Tankas are Japanese and are usually about nature and strong emotions such as love, sadness etc and contain similes, metaphors and personification. The prompt suggested that the last two lines could hold a swift turn or surprise.Image

Soft velvet petals

Of deepest perfumed cerise

Beckon to the bees

Like my comfortable bed

When I am drained by the day.

About One Day Closer To My Dream Life

Hi, I'm Angel, and I'm so glad you stopped by. Although Life took me down another road, since childhood I have loved writing and the power of language to evoke feelings and memories, to communicate with the hundreds of people we come into contact with and build relationships with along the way, and to impart ideas with. It's high time that I reunite with my old pleasure and passion, and start writing down all those words that are rushing around aimlessly in my head, jostling with each other to be heard. Sometimes we most fear doing what we love most in case it doesn't work out as we hope, but sometimes we just need to take that chance regardless! Who knows, maybe those words and plots and characters will take me on a journey that others will get to share with me, and lead me one step closer to living my dream life... I hope so!
