Sunday (Tanka) - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Week’s start, weekend’s end
What a duplicitous day
A promise of rest
But only if chores are done
And Monday is looming large

Topic(s) of this poem: life

    Saturday a night that is not followed by a working day. I love the Saturn instead of the Sun. (Report) Reply

    Sunday lives in fear of Monday. How can it be a holiday? Your Tanks prises a fallacy to drive home the truth. (Report) Reply

    That's one of the fun things about working with this form.

    Retirement is the best job I've had. It took me nearly 50 years to get it but every day is a Sunday. The thing I don't like about chores is washing up and changing the bed. You do it once and six months later you have to do it again! (sorry for British sense of humour) . Lovely Tanka (Report) Reply

    Somehow, even being unemployed, Sunday takes on a feel of its own. Twice a year? You are ambitious! : -)
