Each week author Colleen M. Chesebro invites writers to participate in her #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE. Because today is the Inauguration of the President of the United States, my Tanka (syllables 5/7/5/7/7) is entitled HOPE. It's been a long, difficult year, and whether or not we identify as a Republican, Democrat, Independent or Libertarian, I suspect all of us know heartache. I also believe only we the people can heal that pain. 💗
If you'd like to participate in this challenge, Colleen's name is linked to her blog site, where she hosts information of all sorts. We'd love to have you join us.
