Driving Home – (Tanka Tuesday#220)

For utmost impact

Make sure you’re exact,

Keep words both simple and clear.

To drive a point home

In full monochrome;

You need to be ‘quite’ austere.


A spelling mistake

Can cause a headache,

Grammatical ones are worse.

These are a decoy

From ‘the’ real McCoy;

Truly, a messenger’s curse.


Are points in the plot

Like … a … dot to dot,

Easy to follow and flow?

Do the words enthral

With an action call;

If so; you’re ready to go!
