Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday #Tanka Challenge – ‘Rejection’ by Sally Cronin

This week for Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 148 Colleen Chesebro has given us the prompt words ‘Empty and Space’ and I have selected the synonyms ‘Hollow and Distance

Butterfly Cinquain ‘Rejection’

Silence
magnifies time
and distance between us
and your rejection leaves my heart
hollow.
The promises we made that day
are scattered in the wind
and dreams have turned
to dust.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
