“My Little Bit of Heaven,” A #Tanka

Tanka tuesday

I’ve had some strange episodes with WordPress of late – disappearing draft posts and themes that have more glitches than a change in voltage in an electric circuit! Whatever ails this platform, I hope it corrects itself soon.

Finally, I’ve recreated my creative endeavor for my weekly poetry challenge. I’ve used delight for “play,” and belief for “guess.”

My winter’s delight –
short days and long stary nights,
abed with a book.
Bewitched by my belief in
a fiction lover’s heaven.

  1. Wonderful picture, make me want to curl up with a book.
    “A fiction lover’s heaven”… Nice 🙂
    I’ve had some WordPress annoyances lately too. When I log in from Google Chrome WordPress insists that I’m not a user. The WordPress people told me to use a different search engine. Which works, but … annoying 😦

    1. Oh, geez! It is crazy. I switched from windows to Mac and my experience improved 99%. Now, if WP would get their platform fixed it would help. There are huge improvements coming so I hate to fuss after them. Losing draft posts really was frustrating. Oh well. What do you do? ❤️

      1. Losing a draft, way frustrating! The you’re not a user thing is the first real issue I’ve had with WordPress so I’ll wait and see what the improvements bring. In the meantime, they suggested adding their app to my tablet and that works. Don’t know why I never did it before 🙂
