Inky Girl

(wearing a tank-a top)



Give her ev’ry chance
to etch her words in sand, stone
her demons with phrase;
raise her to the sky and spill
her loose. She’ll find her own way.


a tanka, prompted by mindlovemisery’s heeding haiku.

    Oh my, I love this so. Tank-a top! Are you kiddin’ me?! And an inky girl in a tank-a top? Well now, I think I’ll love her forever.

    Ooh, so clever, the way you got “Eve” and “rye/wry” in the first line. Sand, stone, sandstone, AND stone her demons? Man, you got a lot out of your words and line breaks! Impressive.

    I also like “raise her to the … spill,” … ink spill, that is.

    Also, your last line might say, “She’ll find her own way here, loose.” I hope that’s a good thing! Or maybe you’re talking to Lucy, and you call her Luc for short. 😉

  2. Tank-a top! I loved this pun. 😀 And, she will definitely find her way… the positive note makes it more beautiful… 🙂

  3. This sounds like one for a muse – she does find her own way, that’s for sure!
