The words of a favorite hymn, (Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing) arrive, unbidden, to help me write this post.
Carol's tanka provides the form.
Ken Nesbitt explains it to me. (Did you know tanka means short song?)
"Inspired by a hymn"
Stymied by a prompt
"Bind unto myself today"
Words from a hymn come
Oh, let thy goodness, Lord, bind
my wandering heart to thee
There's nothing quite so delightful as being inspired by other bloggers. Thanks, Carol, for inspiring my very first tanka. And thanks to years of singing hymns so that their lyrics are written in my heart.
I bind unto myself today
the words of hymns to guide my way.
