Two for Tanka Tuesday #tanka

rose

Wake from winter’s sleep
Been taking life too easy
Collecting my thoughts
Time to leave this comfy place
Pick up the pieces of life

The touch of your hand
The look from your gentle eyes
The sound of your voice
My life’s drive is to capture
Memories of your essence

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

This week I decided to do two.
