#TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 273, 5/10/22, #SpecificForm

Last month, Colleen asked Sally Cronin to select a syllabic form for us to learn more about. Her choice was the Butterfly Cinquain.

We have been given a video to take inspiration from, either from the video or the music. Well both inspired me so it’s a combination of both.

Butterfly 🦋 blue.

In blue
Wings fluttering
Twirling she carries dreams.
Bewitched her prince sees only her
They take flight out into the blue
Wishes and dreams she grants
Happy ending
In blue

This is part of Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.
