Colleen has provided the words praise and excite for her weekly poetry challenge. We are required to use synonyms for these words.

Here is my tanka using invigorating and compliments.

Unknown motives

It is invigorating

To be given compliments

But you should beware

As the giver may harbor

Motives only known to him.
