Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Etheree #Poetry Challenge No. 162, #ThemePrompt The Circle Of Life

It’s #TankaTuesday, everyone!

It’s the fourth week of the month, which means I’ll pick a theme for you to write about for this month. On the Monday before the next challenge, I’ll select someone to choose next month’s theme.

This month’s theme is:

“The Circle of Life”

Life
Begins
With nothing
Just a body
But accumulates
Many things over time
Health, wealth, knowledge, family
With time, it all disappears
And what's left? A husk. Just a body
So, as it begins, life ends with nothing.

    Lovely, Ritu. I love the circular nature of your poem–so very true. I often say, we are born alone and die alone, which can seem depressing but it is also somehow comforting–that cycle each of us is a part of.

    Now that is astute! Don’t they always say something like, “from wence we came, we return to the earth?” Love it, Sis. ❤
