Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 172, #Poet’sChoice #Senryu

Colleen’s challenge this week is Poet’s choice of words in a syllabic form of poetry. From me, a trio of senryu about getting moving, during this lockdown time…

A sedentry life
This self isolation lark
Need to get moving

Easy choice, to sit
To watch, to read, to consume
But it's not healthy

Find a reason to
Move, be it inside or out
For your sanity

    Well, Sis… this senryu garland is fabulous! We’re exhausted, but we’ve almost painted the interior of our house. It kept us busy for sure. Now, I’m so tired I can’t function. LOL! Two loos left to paint and we’re done! WHEW! ❤

    It is good to keep ourselves in motion any which way we can.
