#amwriting Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Prompt Challenge #8 – TIME & LAUGHTER



Sun lowers her head,

laughter escapes weary minds,

winter’s somber light.

Crisp grass crumbles underfoot.

Depressions form over time.

Did I mention that I despise winter?  

It’s 9 in the morning and…and 50 degrees F…and I’m sitting at my computer wearing fleece and socks with my flip flops!  

!!!!It’s insane, I tell you!  Insane!!!!

Personally, I don’t think I used enough exclamation points to emphasize my dismay.
