Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Weekly Challenge – #Themeprompt – #TankaProse – Useful by Sally Cronin

This week  Colleen Chesebro’s weekly poetry challenge is a theme prompt suggested by kerfe I have created a Tanka Prose using the prompt.

Tanka Prose – Useful

Her aim in life was to be useful. As a child she would do her chores expecting no reward except a smile. As a teenager she cleaned her room without asking and expected no acknowledgement except a smile. As an adult she always tried to be helpful at work and in relationships and expected nothing except a smile. Her smile always lit up the room in return.

It is important
Not to underestimate
The gift of a smile
To show appreciation
For someone who is useful
