Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge.

This week Colleen Chesebro of Fairy Whisperer has set us the two words Stone and Turn  for our Haiku, Tanka and Haibun Challenge.

I have chosen to do a Haiku about Medusa and a Tanka about the Winter Sea.

Rules and Pingback Here

Medusa.  (Haiku

Her cold eyes so hard

To look her in the face,barred

You’ll be turned to stone.

         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Winter Sea.

Ice cold winter sea

Cruelly batters the sand

Relentless the motion

Milenia take their toll

As hard stone is turned to sand.

    Great take on the prompt words. Medusa is a great choice and the ocean turning stones into sand – brilliant! โค
