Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #101 – Plan & Finish #MicroPoetry

Colleen’s tanka challenge, as always includes the premise that only synonyms for the prompt words must be used…

This week, the words were;

Plan & Finish

Today, it goes without saying, the verse needs to be a tribute to the happenings of 17 years ago in New York…

Image result for 9/11

One man’s decision
Ended the lives of many
And nearly killed faith
Buildings crumbled, so did lives
But hope is still alive yet

    Wonderful Ritu, and so true! Lets never forget this was only one man with some cruel co-workers. Not believers of a religion. Best wishes, Michael
