day dreaming delay: a tanka for our times

day dreaming delay

mind caught in an endless loop

where thoughts are stolen

by fluctuating follies

echoing atrocities

This (thinly veiled comment on my mind’s status today) contribution to Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday  challenge  (synonyms only-dreaming and thought subbed in for fancy and idea) was helped along by Putting My Feet in the Dirt’s wonderful phrase prompt: fluctuating follies.

Visit them both!

  1. Fluctuating follies is a lovely alliterative line Tina. Sometimes it helps to stay busy and creative, then we don’t give ourselves any time to be caught up in the endless day dreaming loop that could potentially lead to disaster. Very thought provoking and a stimulating image too to boot!
