DESTITUTE

Goes to bed hungry

Probes the gap between her

teeth

But there nothing there

{Empty (hungry) Space (gap)}

This is from the talented pen of Ben Naga

It’s so good I am entering it on hi behalf to Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 148 #SynonymsOnly  

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.

Hot air and wishes

Bright dreams and hope light the night

Lantern promises.

Metastasi

Me, constant secret companion

Ever growing, spreading within

Taking over like a black plague

Adhering to your soft cells

Seeping through all organs

Ticking bomb like

Always there

Shading

In.

******

This is my entry for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Our prompt this week is “-tast-.” Find a word that contains “tast” and use it in your post. Enjoy!

This week I have chosen to write a nonet.

October Nights

The moon is full and golden

Spirits awake, become emboldened

Leaves and mists swirl about

Autumn is here, without a doubt.

++++

Foot steps echo down the street

It’s not someone you’d want to meet.

Something fluttering round your ears

Black and sharp, awakes your fears.

++++

Keep your eyes straight ahead

Keep your nerve don’t wind up dead.

There are more things to this season

Than can be explained by human reason.

++++

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.

Sleeping Dragon , Shadorma.

Sleep softly

As thousands of feet

Walk past you

Men are blind

To all your timeless wisdom

Older than all time

Hidden Dragon Tanka

Tired out an old soul

No longer scary or mean

Eons of magic

So much knowledge to impart

Scary of face, kind heart.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 28/19

Our Linda is attending a Writers’ Festival in Kingston (Ontario), but the prompt must go on. So Dan from No Facilities, is filling in for Linda. Here’s your SoCS prompt:

“Our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ent” “ten” “net.” Use one, use two or use all three (bonus points for using two, double-bonus points for using all three). As Linda would say, use ’em any way you’d like. Enjoy!”
So Dan my apologies for running late but here we go 💜.

Intent on tenderising

The meat she bashed the life out of it.

What a waste of good steak.

It’s an easy mistake to make.

Indents you don’t need to make

Just heat the oil in the pan

Then for four minutes each side.

Fry at high heat

Perfect to eat.

Steak four minutes each side

Then then ten minutes rested.

Perfect taste invested.

If you don’t believe me check the internet.
