ReadWritePoem gives us our Day 7 prompt: write a tanka on a humorous love situation. I think I'll use the tanka form (which I had seriously considered writing before I read the prompt) to tell a story from my own marriage--the premiere April Fools' Day joke my husband ever played on me:
he reveals his loveAnd a bonus tanka for spring:
by stringing wire around
the edge of their bed
to switch bedlamp off, on, off--
teasing her for April Fools.
fluttering, spring comes
revealing faith, hope, and love
in brimming puddle
and in budding daffodil--
yellow as a May sunset.
