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.

Rules and Pingback Here

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.

    I really like all three. The haiku is my favorite πŸ™‚ I was wondering if an “s” got away in the Senryu – to my eyes it seems it fell off of “pulls” (leaving “pull”) and landed on “doll” (making it “dolls”). Or am I misreading it?

    Nicely done. A fatal tango – oh my. I like to dance but I think I’ll pass on that step.
