Dare to Cling ~ #poetry challenge – #Tanka

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

Colleen’s poetry challenge for this week is synonyms only!  Her two words are Give and Shake.  Check out Colleen’s blog to find which forms of poetry are acceptable for this challenge.  Have fun!

Written as a Tanka, my synonyms are Abandoning and Shudder.


As winter snow falls,

I shudder in the cold air,

Abandoning warmth.

Much like dear autumn’s last leaf,

Who dares to cling too tightly.
