Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 153 #SynonymsOnly

It’s Tuesday again and time for Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka. This week our prompts are Grace and Style. I have written a Tanka about Thanksgiving. Using, ‘give thanks’ for Grace and ‘as pilgrims did for’ Style.

 Join me for this meal
Lets give thanks as pilgrims did
They survived hard times
They left their homes full of hope
Enjoy fruits of first harvest.

This is part of Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka.

Hi this week Colleen Chesebro has given us the two prompts Trick and Treat. The magic twist is we cannot use those actual words, no we have to use them synonymously.

I have chosen a Shadorma this week, for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. A sad tale of lies, deception and mistreatment.

Deception

T’was ever

Such a deception

As when thou

Promised to

Do fair and handsome by me

Thou didst mislead so.

Probes the gap between her

But there nothing there

{Empty (hungry) Space (gap)}

It’s Tuesday and time for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

Here are your two words for Here are your two words for this week: Empty & Space. Now the twist is we can only use synonyms for these words. I have chosen to write a Tanka. Read into this poem what you may. I feel it has more than one meaning.

EMPTY & SPACE

Filled with nothingness

The void is a vast expanse

We travel alone

Each locked in hollow feelings

Spent, expired in the dead zone.

This is part of Colleen’s poetry challenge.

Leap of Faith .

White

Water

Flowing fast

Suicidal

It’s a leap of faith.

Nature’s blind to danger

Where mists rise to veil the view.

Running leaping in a mad dash.

From it’s source to sea and back again

Just like human life but with much less fuss .

*****

I have chosen to do an Etheree this week, Called Leap of Faith.

This week we are using a photo chosen by last month’s “Photo-Prompt” Poet of the Week Jane Dougherty.

I have gone for the obvious Climate change. I have written an Etheree for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

**********

The Ending.

They

All said

It would not

Happen, yet all

The waters are rising

All the birds are leaving home

Temperatures are higher now.

Than they have ever been, water boils.

Gia, head bent succumbs to climate change.

Jane Dougherty and Colleen came up with a fun idea. Whoever is chosen as the Photo-Prompt Poet of the Week will choose the photo for the next month’s photo-prompt challenge.

You can use Pixabay or any other creative commons photos – just give attribution to the photographer. If you would like to use your own photos, just let me know that. Please email the photo NLT 3 days before the next month’s photo challenge.

This week Colleen has given us the prompt words Enchant and Fly. I have chosen to write a Shadorma for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

The title is Bewitched

You’re bewitched

Within her magic

Held under

Her love spell

Her charm makes your spirit soar

Born on wings of joy.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 142, 1st of the Month #Poet’sChoice

Today is the first Tuesday in the month so we can choose our own two prompts for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

I have chosen Autumn and Age. I am using each of those words and I am using the form of a Nonet.

Life.

The sands of time run out on my life.

No too fast but the years mount up

Like the seasons we all change

I’ve become Autumnal

In this I see much

Beauty, knowledge

That comes with

Growing

Age
