Colleen’s Prompt this week:

Heat & Confuse

A Tanka for all the disheartened teachers out there…

They turned up the heat
My to-do lists are insane!
I am so confused!
What should I concentrate on?
Ticking ‘boxes’ or children?

And a HAiku for all you Mid-life ladies… I’m nearing there too!

Woman, Middle-Aged, Swing, Serious, Sad

All hot and flustered
These turns are confusing me
Am I young or old?

    I nearly wrote a hot flush one too, but decided on passion instead! This midlife thing is most annoying!

    Though I can’t physically relate to the second one, understand where it is coming from. Good one.
