Colleen Chesebro Weekly Tuesday Tanka Poetry Challenge. Dance & Command.

This week for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge we have the words Dance and Command. The twist is we have to use synonyms.

First I did a Senryu about relationship.

Like a doll she twirls

He thinks it’s to his orders

No, she pulls his strings

And then a Haiku.

Snowdrops, Crocuses

Perform annual ballet

As young Spring decrees.

Finally a Tanka.

A fatal tango

I trip the light fantastic

My inner voice screams no

I do his bidding blindly

Yet still I get it all wrong.

Cried, dried a million tears

Words falling through the years

Hidden hopes hidden fears, I have tried.

Shelter

Shelter is halfway up the hill

Reach it while there is light still

I have run so far yet not escaped

The blackness in which my life is caped.

Shelter is within my sight

The monster I must fight.

He leaves the bushes and heads for me.

No escape is all I see.

His tallons sharp rip out my heart

I cannot fight I don’t know where to start.

I cannot reach the shelter yet

But I know it’s there, I won’t forget.
