#Poetrychallenge – Beginning & Consume

Colleen Chesebro is back with her weekly poetry challenge after moving house. This week her prompt words are beginning and consume for which entrants must use synonyms. I have been so deprived of poetry prompts that I wrote two tankas [smile].


Now to grow

A decision made

releases my captive mind

and eradicates

unproductive reflections

initiating new growth

Breaking bonds

Finding happiness

may require breaking the bonds

that devour freedom

allowing for conception

of spirit releasing plans

    1. I have made a decision to move out of corporate by the end of this year (the date is now set in my mind). I am going to branch into other things and probably consult a bit from home. A relief to finally make the right decision.
