The Wild Within

This is for the Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge, hosted by Kiwinana at Ramblings of a Writer.  Below is my effort for week 54; the words are “domesticated” and “wild”. The prompt can be found here.  Go and check it out!

That look in your eye

Speaks of the wild within you

Running with the pack

Long since domesticated

My loyal friend for always

      • Hey Sammi…she’s adorable, what’s her name? 🙂 Perhaps you could have encouraged mum to write the Tanka…or perhaps she may write a tale for your Blog, or a poem sharing an adventure she has had whilst out with the doggy-doo? Just a thought 🙂

        Namaste 🙂

        I hope mum might rise to the challenge and pen a line or two…perhaps she harbours a secret desire to write? 🙂 There’s no doubting your creativity flows from her: Carl Jung believed the creative impulse and wish to express (create) is derived from the mother.

        Namaste 🙂
