Tanka for 3WW


Three Word Wednesday's moderator ThomG offers the following words for today's prompt: efficient, optimize and treacherous




Tanka Tale

Nearly efficient
Engle optimized his life
to miss any strife
but in haste he did retain
his treacherous token wife

Both poems are lovely. One made me laugh out loud (treacherous token wife), and the other made me think of spring in the woods. Thank you for both.

I so loved your post for ABC Wednesday which has put me in a dreamy state of mind, I forget what I was going to say about your 3WW.
Ah yes I verge on treacherous wife when I feel 'tokenised'.

LOL! I love this. Isn't it the truth that we sometimes overlook the biggest obstacle of all?
