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

Learn to disco dance

Trees

Might be

Gentle giants

We learn to love

Grounded energy

Connecting earth and sky

Home to creatures great and small

Some succumb to Mother Nature

Others stand proud for hundreds of years

Teaching us to be strong no matter what

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

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

Santa Paws

Colleen Chesebro challenged us to use the synonyms for GIVE and SHAKE for this week. I chose the words DELIVERED and WIGGLED!

She delivered gifts

For the shelter animals

Who wiggled with joy
