Look Beyond

In response to Colleen Chesebro’s weekly Tanka Tuesday challenge. Poets are allowed to choose their own words. I chose BEAUTY and SLAVE.

Her beauty

Ever her captor

She the slave

To her looks

Longing to truly be seen

Appreciated

Drain the Snake

In response to Colleen Chesebro’s #photoprompt this Tanka Tuesday, I submit this Shadorma.  FOLLOW Colleen to stay in the loop of her weekly challenges.

Here is the photo we had to work with:

To control

Serpent tendencies

I sit here

Play music

To hypnotize the wicked

Risking my own life

clocked

I have hands

That you cannot shake

Need no gloves

Hold no coin

They’re always moving forward

Time slipping through them

inspirational

Watching you

Watching the sunrise

Filled with hope

And questions

In awe of each day’s fresh start

Respect for your life

staycation

You should try

To pamper yourself

Pedicure

Manicure

And perhaps a glass of wine

Or simply sleep in
