Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge: GATHER & SOFT
The prompt words for Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge are GATHER & SOFT, Synonyms Only. I use Memories for Gather and Gentle for Soft in the Tanka this week.
Puzzle at the scene
Searching for her memories
Flashes of bits and pieces
Calms her with his gentle touch
Smile cases away her fear
