I flip unturned stone;
Soil cleaves to jagged bottom.
Did I disturb it,
Wake the stone from peaceful sleep?
Or rouse it for a new day?
On this ‘Whatever I Want’ Thursday, I’m responding to Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday #117 – poet’s choice of prompt words. As I wonder whether or not I’m pleased that another year has passed, I think about what things I want to keep and what I want to change about myself, my life, and my circumstances.
As a PSA to anyone paying attention, I’m getting my wisdom teeth out today (maybe even as you read this…). It’s garbage because my wisdom teeth are fully formed and I’m too old for this mess. While I hope to keep posting over the next few days/week, I might be really high or in pain and incapable.
