#Poetrychallenge – Slow and work

It’s an attitude

I am not relaxed

In my attitude to life

I keep myself busy

Enjoying most of my tasks

They are fun and not a drudge

My world

I can’t operate

In sedate environments

Ultra busy days

Filled with interesting jobs

Keep my world going around


These two tanka poems were written in response to Colleen Chesebro’s weekly poetry challenge. You can join in the fun here: https://colleenchesebro.com/2019/01/29/colleens-2019-weekly-tanka-tuesday-poetry-challenge-no-121-slow-work-synonymsonly/

  1. Hi Robbie! Great use of the prompt words. I can relate with your poems. I can see the need to have goals and to keep busy as we head toward them. I get bored when I’m not working on several projects at once. 🙂 xo
