This November, my weight watchers group is listing three good things for each day of November. I love this exercise because it’s a simple method of redirecting attention towards positive thoughts and away from negative thoughts.
This double ennead is for #TankaTuesday, where we were to choose a color to feature in our poem.
The Double Ennead comprises five lines with a syllable count of 6/5/11/6/5, (33 SYLLABLES per stanza) 3 STANZAS EACH = 99 SYLLABLES, NO MORE, NO LESS! Punctuation and rhyme schemes are optional and up to the poet.
