thankful of this given sight
i cherish what seems mundane

I have very bad eyesight. When I wake up in the morning, I usually move around the house without my glasses. After I have my breakfast and wash up, then I put on my glasses. By then, the sun has risen and every morning, I am amazed by what I see.

This is a thankful tanka. The simple things that I sometimes take for granted.

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.

A Tanka is a Japanese poem and similar to a Haiku, however it has seven lines. Tankas are nature, seasons, love, and other emotions. Line one has a five syllable count, line two is seven syllables, line three is five syllables, line four is seven syllables, and line five seven syllables. In total it has thirty one syllables.

Line 1: 5 syllables

100 Word Wednesday: Week 118


Title: Suit up

“This is worse than ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’. I would have said, ‘Whatever you have done, reverse it’ but that would only work if we can still move!” Daniel ‘Dan’ Einstein scolded.

“We checked the data twice! The machine was supposed to transform fats into muscles!” Dennis ‘Dan’ Feynman. “How was I supposed to know our invention would transform fats into Lego figures?”

“At the very least, we don’t have to use ourselves as test subjects and transformed ourselves into Legos!” Dante ‘Dan’ Newton retorted. “And having a fat body is better than an immobile Iron Man Lego figures!”
