Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 151 #SynonymsOnly

Pale her
Skin, so dark
Her eyes. Blood red
Her lips. She watch him
From afar, yearning to
Hold him close and inter him
Within sweet, damp earth enfold him
With her roots. Excervate around his
Soul to take him whole, entomb, bury him.
Went about
His life unaware
Of her Vampire eyes
Watching and waiting to
Catch him unaware, his life
To sap . His body to cover
And wrap deeply making him hers.
Underneath entombed hers to keep always.

As part of her, Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge this week Colleen has given us the two prompt and words. Dig and Grave using synonyms only. Or as it’s Halloween we could write Halloween story no synonyms needed for that option. I chose to write a double Etheree as a Halloween story too.

A Little Practice.

Here is  a little practice  trying something new
I really hope this looks like verse for you.
It is looking good her in editing
But will it stay so when publishing
I really do not know
So I will press publish. Here we go!

What is a heading ? This is!

Oh! Look I have colour too
Is there no end to what I can do?

Bold and Italic whoopdedo!

Look at this

writing and and image together what bliss.

Now I think I am making progress

I hope I have not lost your interest.

Somehow I lost have of this post when I published so I hope it’s all here now , fingers crossed .
