Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Challenge # 24 – “FIRE & RAIN”

welcome-to-the-tanka-cafe-on-st

Colleen’s prompt words this week  Fire and Rain are quite tricky… wonder how to approach this. I might as well confess what my new job is… I was a lingerie stylist at Rigby and Peller but unfortunately my maternity leave contract came to an end and that left me with no job. Sigh. Initially, it seemed the obvious choice to apply to other lingerie shops, as I had experience. I did get some interviews but no offers. So I decided to apply to Ann Summers… and got the job! I can tell you it’s the most unusual job I’ve ever had. I reckon it will give me a lot of writing material! Enough said. 🙂

So a bit of Tanka humour this week…

 

The Bunny Bundle,

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

    Haha 😉 Love that you turned your work experience into a fun poem. I used to work at La Senza, which is a lingerie store in Canada. Interesting stories indeed!
