“Learning to Fly,” A Senryu

Life is likea cup of tea

This week for my Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge, I used synonyms “stretch” for the word give, and “grasp” for receive.


Stretch your wings and fly—
snatch what seems outside your grasp,
success will find you.

  1. I almost remembered something that would fit here, but then it left me again. When I find it again I”ll send you a copy. I love your mental images, my friend. And if it’s cool there, I would love being in your area, because the heat index is over 105 here today!

    1. We hit 90 degrees today. There’s a bad fire down near Pueblo and all the smoke has blown into Colorado Springs. It’s pretty yucky right now but I’m not sweating to death! LOL! You say in the cool. Don’t go out in this heat. ❤

      1. No problem about me leaving the apartment until things cool off outside. My trips out occur immediately after sunrise and don’t last longer than an hour. What part of the Springs is affected by the fire? I have a brother and 2 sisters living there, but haven’t heard anything from them lately. One sis lives in Monument, close to the AF Academy and surrounded by trees!
