No Stone Unturned – #Tanka

amazing balance blur boulder

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.

    Good luck with the teeth. I had my last wisdom tooth removed last year. It’s never a fun experience. The dentist took a long while to pull it out. Still it wasn’t as bad as having my two lower ones removed. That was painful for a very long time. Not sure what I’m trying to say here… Hopefully the procedure will be quick and not too painful. Just take of yourself for the next couple of days 🙂

    Really liked this poem! I was avoiding having my wisdom teeth pulled until my dentist told me that my entire set of teeth will be shifted if I don’t. I have a small mouth. There was no room for wisdom there! Here’s to a quick recovery for you! 🙂
