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

Matchmaker

Hearts turn to the sky

With the thought of love in mind

Trusting in the orb

Seeking help to find the mate

That the harvest moon shall bring
