Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 106, “Ghost and Hollow,” #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisper‘s blog Tuesday Tanka Challenge. I have written an Autumnal Cinquain and a Halloween Etheree.

Leaves fall

Softly, silent

Like phantoms in the mist

The del’s full of the spirit of




The mist

Hallowed ground

Long dead spirits

Wake to move around

None have a beating heart

Nor a conscience to be found

All lost souls their bodies are void

Endless chill invades their empty souls

Their time is now Autmn and Halloween.

    Both of these are hauntingly beautiful! These suit the moodiness of Halloween and dying trees shedding there leaves. 🍂🍁🌾

      Thank you this a beautiful time of the year with red and gold leaves carpeting the ground, golden and red sunsets too. Everything dying for awhile before rebirth.💜

    I love how you started off with a warm salute to autumn and then turned to the gruesome atmosphere of Halloween. Great job!
