Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 125 #SynonymsOnly – Game & Trouble #Senryu

It’s Tuesday, and that means Colleen’s Tanka Challenge! Of course, just providing a couple of words would be far too simple, so we have two words, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

Origin & Write

 Looking at the past
Recording every moment
Of my ancestry
 
Scribing names of
Ancestors who shaped my life
Made me who I am

Forging connections
On paper, by pen, today
Lasting forever

 Ritu 2019
