Old Dog New Tricks

We were faced with using SQUARE and CIRCLE, so I chose TROGLODYTE and WHIRL.

The troglodyte thought

I’ll give it a whirl, why not

integration

This week, Colleen Chesebro gave us the words, HARMONY & TRANSITION and we must use SYNONYMS ONLY. I chose REALIGNMENT & UNDERSTANDING for my TANKA.

For realignment

We must be understanding

As it’s not easy

Of course, it’s for our own good

We’ll be better for the work

Word Power

Colleen Chesebro challenged us with using synonyms only for the words COMFORT and WORN. I chose to use FAMILIAR and FADES. Join us in the fun!

As I slip into

The familiar excuses

Their strength fades away

I am encouraged to change

To create a better life

faint hints

She dropped to the ground

Hence, the opportunity

For him to notice
