Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 185, #Poet’sChoice

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Poets, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you!

This week I have chosen to write a double Etheree about my cousin Lyndy and myself, crowing up.

Lyndy and Me.

This is part of Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

One

Two three

Lyndy and

Me. Playing in

The yard happily.

Four five six young and free

Life was good for Lyndy and me

Daddy made the scooter, we shared

Such happy days, we were free from care

Seven eight nine, endless days in the sun shine.

Time

Flew by

For Lyndy

And little me too.

Playing in fairy dells,

Ten, eleven Twelve

Summers were good to Lindy

And me.Thirteen fourteen fifteen.

We grew up cousin Lyndy and me

Close together, wherever we may be.

    This is lovely Willow, nice to have a cousin who is close to you. Mine live overseas and the ones in the UK weren’t particularly friendly! 🙂
