The Quest – A #Tanka

Hi! Welcome to my contribution to my weekly #Tanka Tuesday challenge. This week, I tweaked the prompt word of “change” to “alter,” and I let “beauty” stay the same. Both words have many connotations and can modify the meaning of your Tanka poetry in many ways. Don’t be afraid to experiment with synonyms. Sometimes the most subtle meanings pack the most punch in your poetry.

Please link your Tanka to my post found here.

At the beginning of the year, my mind is filled with the reflections of my life from the past year. The prompt words spoke to me this week. How about you?

Don’t forget to join in and share your #Tanka #Poem using the words: beauty and change!

Alter your thinking –
to seek inherent beauty,
is change essential?
An attitude adjustment
overcomes my fate.
