#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 210 #SYNONYMSONLY

Welcome to Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Poetey Challenge.

Colleen said. “Don’t forget! You can use the Badger Hexastitch form if you want to experiment. I suggested two opposite words for you to find synonyms for. This form is written in 6 lines, with a syllable count of 2/4/6/6/4/2. The form is unrhymed with optional rising and falling end-words, which I think adds an interesting twist. Until I get this added to the cheatsheet, please read my discussion of this form HERE.” So ever eager to experiment I have had a go. I have use the synonyms Time Gone for Past, and Now for Present.

Here are your two words:

PAST & PRESENT.

Time gone
A lifetime of
Learning sets the, now pace.
History teaches well
Nought changes just
Repeats.
