Awakening – #tanka


All is grey and dead
Memories of snow linger
I await in faith
But a sprout of color rises
Trust rewarded, credit gained

This was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge.  The key words today were “Grow” and “Honor”.  Following her suggestion, I didn’t use the words, I used only synonyms.
