“The Vitality of Words,” A Tanka
This week for my Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge, I used the word “drives,” for vigor, and “vitality” for the word, energy.
I chose these words to show how fun it could be to use words that have a similar meaning or connotation in your poetry. I usually like to use opposites because that gives us an opportunity to show some kind of tension in our prose. Change is good, right?
Thesaurus.com gives us different synonyms for the word, “energy.” I’ve added a screenshot so you can see the available tabs for the different meanings of the word. Please take advantage of those additional suggestions. I always try to find words that have additional meanings (not always) but I do try. 😀
drives me into a frenzy
deep within my soul,
the vitality of words
flows with an intensity.
