Tanka for Magpie Tales

Willow at Magpie Tales offers an enigmatic image to draw words from writers. This week:




black holes drawing in
mock-ups rimed by jagged rims
synapses splinter
shift about with passing time
fragments line the faulty trail


Willow image.

I like 'synapses splinter' and the idea that there are times our lives don't hold together very well.

I like that you chose things from science to create a feeling of distress - black holes, splintered synapses, etc. Very creative!
