tanka : profuse poems

2+

quick words tumble out
profuse flood of imagery
written in margins
scribbled on napkins, scrolls
poems inside pyramid walls

tanka by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

So frustrated.  Was writing a poem daily and had managed six  months everyday and then yesterday my computer couldn’t go online! Next day (today), after a few updates, everything works but it’s tooo late!  My streak is broken and I have to start over.  Ah well.  Picks myself up.   Brushes the dust off.  Sets the hat on my head.  Picks up my pen and begins anew.

Profuse
daily prompts, daily ost
