Restricted – A Tanka

Desperate tree roots

Heave against concrete confines,

Seeking space to grow;

We too should strive to break free

From mundane urbanity.

This tanka was written for Kiwinana’s Weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge – this week the words were “roots” and “wisdom”. I used the “roots” prompt literally but the “wisdom” is just implied – there is much we can learn from the natural world!

If you want to have a go at the challenge, you can find the link here:
