I’m linking this post to Colleen’s #TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 276, 5/31/22, #ShareYourDay . It’s my first time participating in it. I’ve long wanted to but, somehow, I hadn’t been able to. This week’s prompt is to share your day in syllabic poetry alongwith a picture.
I took the below photograph of the lady, from the car as we sped past on the highway on our way to a temple, last Sunday. While we did manage to reach the temple, I couldn’t go in as I did not feel too well. It was a shame after the 4-hour long car journey and especially, since I had been waiting to visit the place for the last 2 months- it’s supposed to be an important place of pilgrimage for Hindus and I got to know of it only when I wrote a post on the all-girls trip I took in March. But, I’ll write about that some other time.
Anyway, the first thing I did after returning is to book an appointment with the doctor. So, my week went in two visits to the doctor, a blood test and a sonography. I have my next appointment on Tuesday evening. Only then I’ll get to know what’s wrong.
Anyway, my haiku on the picture is written below. I hope I’ve met the requirements.
Summer’s blazing sun
Parches all it shines upon
