Asleep #Cinquain #Poetry #TankaTuesday

My strength
Fades in the night
Sapped of all my power
My eyes heavy – my body weak
Asleep

This is my entry to Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday prompt, vigor and energy.

  1. Hi Jason! Great Cinquain! I like the way you used the prompt words to give the poem the opposite feel of the words. Vigor – your strength is fading | Energy – sapped of all your power. Brilliant!
