Do The Hustle

Colleen Chesbro invited us to create our own format this week – I chose to combine SHADORMA (26 syllables) with TANKA (31 syllables) to form a Heinz 57 or Shatanka

Heard about

Class being offered

Life lessons

For guidance

To help me be open to

Living my purpose

So, I plunged right in

For all of twenty-one days

Felt the excitement

From the very first moment

I knew I’d done the right thing
