#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 288: #Tastetherainbow-Colour Poetry


Its Tuesday again and time for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. Colleen says “Hello everyone. Happy September! This week, choose your own syllabic form and a color to feature in your syllabic poem. Think about the different ways you can use color in a poem.”

I have chosen a Tanka today. As I am going to a wedding later this week I have used it loosely as my subject. My colours are red and white.

The bride flows in white
Red-blooded groom full of lust
Hearts beating with pride
All part of Nature’s big plan
Yes it’s all procreation

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 3, 2022

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “start with why.” Begin your post with the word “why.” Have fun!

I went deep into my darkside for this one.

Why

Why am I so angry why am I so low
You’re driving me to distraction, why? I do not know.
Always putting everyone else first, but not me.
Always pardoning others for reasons I can’t see.
If I try to tell you to let them take their turns
You round on me and give that look that burns.
I’m sick of being wrong, having to zip my mouth.
Why not put me first, why?

Inspiration

Mostly it slips through your fingers like grains of sand.
Hold it up to the light and there will be nothing there, just shadows.
Then just like sunrise it will blind you, fill you with hope as it shows you the way.

#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 287, 8/30/22, #ShareYourDay

WELCOME TO #TANKATUESDAY!

It’s the fifth Tuesday of the month!  #ShareYourDay is a way to get to know each other better. Take a photo and write a syllabic poem about your day. Don’t think on it too hard. Make it fun. The photo does not need to be a selfie. If you don’t have access to a camera, find an image on Pixabay.com (please add the credits) that best describes your .

I am going to the wedding of my niece next week and I have spent most of today sorting out what to wear…. I have used two photos, I hope that is okay.

I chose to write a The Butterfly Cinquain is an unrhymed, nine-line syllabic poem with 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2 syllables per line.

Planning
What shall I wear
Green or lilac , choices.
Both have hints of Mother Gaia
Which one
Which to choose I am not quite sure
Spring or Autumn colour
Finally I
Decide

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 27, 2022

Hi Saturday again and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday this week Linda’s email said: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “board/bored.” Use one, or use them both for bonus points. Enjoy!.

Are you bored? the billboard said
There’s time for that when you’re dead?
Nothing to do? The billboard asked
Get up and find yourself a task
Grab a board and catch a wave or snow slope
Fly a plane, climb on board, don’t give up hope.
Be a pirate make someone walk the plank
Hit the high board, or plan a prank.
Make a space station out of cardboard.
Dig for treasures, follow the map to find the hoad.
No get a life, get on board have some fun don’t be bored!

Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday Poetry Challenge #24. Use ADVERSITY as your inspiration this week.

The painting below is by Franz Marc, killed at Verdun in 1916. It put me in mind of the Ukrain, a country standing tall in adversity.

ADVERSITY

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Sijo Challenge

Bullies cower, smaller nations by oppression.
Raging in, all barrels blasting, no mercy, proving evil garners evil.
Yet the oppressed stood strong and for freedom. Strength in adversity.

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Here we are for another #TankaTuesday poetry challenge! Are you ready for a theme prompt? Sarah selected this month’s theme:

LESSONS FROM NATURE

Use the theme above to write your choice of syllabic poem. Your poem must include or be about a lesson from nature.

Some years ago I was walking home and I saw a mushroom that had pushed it’s way through the Tarmac at the base of a lamppost. The tiny soft mushroom had broken through the Tarmac to grow and flourish next to the lampost. How could this happen? How can something so soft and small triumph over Tarmac and steel? Nature/ Gaia knows more than us …we should sit at her knees and learn from her but we do not. Man goes his own sweet stupid way.

I chose to write a double Butterfly Cinquain is an unrhymed, nine-line syllabic poem with 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2 syllables per line.

Tarmac
Man made and hard
Mushroom Gaia’s handwork
Needs to leave the dark so it thrives
So soft
Determined and triumphant it
Pushes aside man-made
Covering of
Tarmac.

Mistake
Man takes no heed
Of Gaia’s message, clear
She will be thriving long after
Man has
Lost his tenterive hold on earth
She’ll lay claim to his work
We could have learnt
From her .
