Abraham’s Call

Paint Chip Poetry

Abraham in Ur
God’s voice upon a zephyr
Told him from home go
Onward then to Canaan’s land
His compliance was not slow

The paint chip words and phrases are starshipzephyrslowblack widow, coffeelemonade, and sunny-side up. I want you to pick two or three, and no more, of these words and phrases and write a tanka. That means you get a total of 31 syllables written in lines of 5/7/5/7/7.
