Its Hard (a Tanka)

Harder and harder
To breath, climbing up the hill
Harder and harder
To not cry out in pain and
Pray to rest in the soft dirt.

Poem #12 for National Poetry Writing Month (aka #NaPoWriMo)

This Tanka is my first response to Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 28 – HARD & SOFT. I am honored to say that Colleen named me this week’s “Poet of the Week,” based on my tanka The Mask, which was a response to last week’s challenge.
