#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
Cosmic
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.

Butter, Butterfly 🦋

Drawn to light you swoop and fly 🦋

Please don’t make me cry.🦋

Use your magic Butterfly 🦋

Let me win before I die. 🦋

JusJoJan: Butterfly Girl.

Here is the butterfly girl, eyes alive feelings a twirl

You can’t believe what you see, as her wings unfurl.

Knowledge beyond  bounds takes  you by surprise

It is there, all there reflected  in here eyes.

 

Silver elusive dancing motes of sunrise dust

Like a halo around her head, gold, amber and rust.

What is  she thinking. can you tell?

Beware, be careful she will slip you under her spell.

 

Here she is the butterfly  girl

Up tippytoe  wings flippyflap skirts swirly whirl.

Hazel brown eyes that captivate

Watch  her though. I warn you before it is too late.

 

Sun bright colours like fractals of light

Leave colours on the wall casting off  all blight.

Gayly she thrashes her colourful  skirts about

The butterfly girl , watch out for her magical pout.
