Excellent tanka, Desiree. The quote from your piece mentioning 60-hour weeks is definitely me right now. But, a life change is on the horizon!
In full disclosure, it was Radha Kapadia who wrote this piece
which inspired me to use the word “hush” as the August prompt for my Weeds & Wildflowers publication:
Geetika Sethi responded to that prompt and then tagged others to do the same.
One big circle!
