COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 189, #POET’SCHOICE

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!

So the news intervened in my choice today. The explosion in Lebanon’s capital Beirut yesterday prompted me to write the chain of Haiku below. As if the Lebanon has not got enough issues. As of writing this it’s not known if this incident was an horrific accident or act of war/ terror. I am praying for the dead and injured, numbered in the thousands.

I am combining Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge with Ronovanwrite’s invitation to try out his own new form of Haiku which he has named Shi Rensa Haiku. Here is his explanation.

Beirut

Kindness in measure

Helps us to flourish and grow

Please extend a hand

**

Please extend a hand

To those stricken by evil

In a far off land

**

In a far off land

Lives stolen and ripped apart

Look deep have a heart.

**

Look deep have a heart

We need to find new kindness

There is not enough.
