Struggles With Socks

I struggle with stocks,

My worry monster eats them;

Burdens played away.

This is the second Colleen Chesbro’s Tanka Tuesday Prompts I’ve done this week. This Senyru is a little light relief. The words given to find synonyms for were ‘game’ and ‘trouble’.

    Don’t feed the worry monster, he will only grow…..

      I know what you mean, but not this one! We have this wonderful little monster called Wally (pictured). Just looking at his face makes us smile. We bought two for our neice and nephew and decided the eternal kids within us needed one too. The idea is that you write it down and put it in their zip mouth and in the morning the worry has gone.
