His demeanor is so sunny
He stands proud on his last hoorah!
Knowing he’s spread his seeds afar.
Across meadows just like honey.
From lawns they want him gone, funny.
Sparks memories of days of old.
Blowing fairy wishes untold.
A green and yellow dandy he
Such a glorious sight to see.
He’s such a delight to behold

#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 244 #EKPHRASTIC #PHOTOPROMPT

#TANKATUESDAY. This week it is Ekphrastic Tuesday.

Merril D. Smith selected the image this week. It’s a lithograph and you can read more about it HERE. Remember, we can see what’s in the image, so write your poem using the image as an inspiration. Don’t just describe what you see in the lithograph. Think about metaphor and allegory. Just remember to check what form you’re using. Some of the Japanese forms frown upon the use of metaphors. This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing, inspired by visual art.

I chose to do a Tanka this week, I really love this image, it’s very relivant to the world today .

death is so tired
exhausted by the burden.
no one here listens
he turns life’s timers around
drowning us all out of hand.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 18, 2021

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “puzzle.” Use it any way you’d like! I used it as an Acrostic Poem.

Ponder this if you will
Undo things that make you ill
Zen is for the high brow
Zoo is where we live
Life is a conundrum
Everyday mystery!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday

#TANKATUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 243, #SYNONYMSONLY

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY

Are you ready to choose some syllables to use in your syllabic poetry this week? Ruth, from RuthKlein’s Scribbles, selected your two words:

I chose to write an ETHEREE this week, my synonyms for Family are Clans and relations, and for peace, Tranquility and war free.

Family & Peace.(Synonyms)

We
Bluster
And bemoan
The shortcomings
Of extended clans
While calming the waters
Others raise fires with their fans.
Will things come to a bloody pass?
Or tranquility encompass us?
And so relations we will be, war free.

chin smooth a peach
the teen years bring gentle fuzz
don’t use harsh razors
there’s time enough for stubble
the urge to age breeds trouble.

#TANKATUESDAY WEEKLY POETRY CHALLENGE: #POET’S CHOICE

Dark Dreams

Dreams
Standing
On a ledge
Fear, spider like
Creeps closer to you
Drenching you with cold sweat
Paralysed you cannot move to
The is no chance of escaping
The blackness engulfs you and you drown
Sinking to the depths of the black abyss.

THIS IS PART OF COLLEEN’S TANKA TUESDAY WEEKLY POETRY CHALLENGE. THIS WEEK I HAVE WRITTEN AN ETHEREE.

A line of blood drawn in the sand.
Poison and fear begin to drip
Over the evil rules you trip
The men stand with guns in hand
Hide you’re not worthy as woman.
Every inch you have ever gained
Wrenched from you, all your freedom drained.
Deserted, left now high and dry
False promises your left to cry.
Lost forever the freedom gained.

The Tree

Dark skies, so cold I pull my coat about me, glad of its warmth. I hear you, calling to me. Suddenly the empty space around me is full of people, strange people. Scared of crowds I make for you, you call and guide me. My fear of crowds heightens my senses. I reach you and feel your strength and your knowledge. At last I am safe.

so deep are your roots
unlike me, shallow, flailing
I’m blown back in time
drawn back through millions of souls.
To you, to love, to the truth
