This must be a record, getting so many of the words in so small a space, Bravo.

Very nice piece. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my jewelry. I haven't made any in so long it felt good to stretch my fingers so to speak!

Robin said...

Nice, Sue! I love the way you've used so many of these words. And, yes, in such a brief poem. Brava!

Mary said...

So much to think about in this wordle, Susan....thinking about the current events of the day.

Susan (your name?),

This tanka not only reprises your skill at these tight forms, but has a coherence to it, and no small irony!

Good one.

GREAT line!

Very nice job! I haven't tried a Tanka in some time. Must give it another try.

Dick said...

Quite an achievement - a tanka and firing off so many of the words. I only managed two in a piece three times the length. Good work.

the malfunction alert comes late. perfect ending. well done.

lightverse said...

What an awesome tanka! You said so much - and with so few words. Brava!

Kelly said...

Love this! And I agree with Twitches - that line really stood out for me too.

Have to agree with the others, amazing ability to put all those words in a Tanka and still have it cohesive. And I love the image.

Elizabeth said...

Powerful and cohesive. This one is a marvel, hats off to you,

A tightly-wrapped tanka, not a word too few or too many. And somehow managing to include so many of the Wordle words... as others have said, an astonishing feat of poetic skill!

I like the edgy feel to this. All sharp and pointed.
