Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 53 – MIST & SHAPE

This week is the beginning of the second year of Colleen Chesebro’s of The Fairy Whispers Poetry Challenge.

This week’s prompts are Mist and Shape.

    Haiku Autumn

Autumn brings cold mist

Melding colour and all shape

Soft and all mellow.


Mist and Shape :  Tanka

I watched in silence

Four shapes approached through mist

Clad black on horseback

Horsemen of Apocalypse

I was rooted to the spot.
