Wonder and Believe

I

Wonder

About my

Choices sometimes

And if they serve me

Since we are all here to grow

Do my choices hold me back

So I guess only time will tell

My choice to believe that gives me hope

That my choices really do serve me well

Everywhere a Sign

This week, I chose to use the words, JOLLY, and SPRING! Why? Because spring is a jolly time of year for me. I watch the land waken and all of nature brightens up in celebration! Follow Colleen Chesebro for all the fun her blog has to offer, including Tanka Tuesdays

Jolly fat robins

Worms are staying underground

Barren trees will bud

Temperatures on the rise

Spring is more than on its way

View from the window

Frosted trees and bushes

Blue peeks through white clouds

Imagination removes the glass

The soul flies with the birds

Sad

This week’s challenge from Colleen Chesebro, is a Poet’s Choice. I chose the words: SEEK & ELUSIVE 

Just seeing someone

Trying too hard to be liked

Can be confusing

The very thing they’re seeking

Grows ever more elusive

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Cold & Clothing

Brrr, bathrobe weather

Be sure to grab a sweater

In case you need it

Dig out the mittens and scarves

To stay warm inside the house
