The earth keeps turning
Gia changes her seasons
Untouched by man’s time
She needs no rhyme or reason
She is patient with us all.

This week for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka I chose to do a Tanka about Mother Nature and her timeless progress, despite our best efforts to ruin her.

Hi here we are the second Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge of 2020.

Today’s prompt is Calm and Present. The trick is we can only use synonyms . This week I have done an old style Haiku.💜

All still and pleasant

My mind is empty, peaceful

Time stops in the now.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 158 #PhotoPrompt

Hi everyone it’s Tuesday again and time for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. It’s the middle of the month challenge ~ time for a photo prompt! This month we will use a photo chosen by last month’s “Photo-Prompt” Poet of the Week ~ Merril D. Smith.

I have chosen to do an etheree. I looked up the photo. It discribed as a flower on a piece of areogel which is protecting the flower from a Bunsen burner. I see my soul as the flower, the areogel as my Guardian Angel, and the Bunsen burner as the sins of the world.

Protection

My

Soul held

In your care

Shielded with love

From the fires of hell

You keep me safe from sin

My beloved guardian

However intense the danger

Your wings keep me safe from the world’s harm

You care for me and I bathe in your calm.

Snow Scene Ball
Crystal ball
Pass on the magic
Stir things up
Mix the scene
A gift to the ones I love
Move to make snow fall.

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro‘s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

Strangely the temperature dropped here and we had snow which I have a video here. My poem is an Etheree.

Deep Winter

Snow

Silent

Covering

All in silence

The tempest arrives

Freezing, chilling the ground

Squalls whipping up banks of

white

Blizzards persists temperatures

Dropping fast like falling mercury

Noses grow red tingling fingers and toes.

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 110, “Pleasant &s Read,” #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisper’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. This week my fast growing favourite form of poetry. The Etheree.

To

Imbibe

Of a book

Under a tree

Brings out such happy

And contented feelings

In me. Imagination

Running happy and free for me

Joyful pictures in my head I see

Comfortably I devour the words

Or

Infront

Of blazing

Flames, a drink in

Hand,devouring

Squiggles off of the page.

Brings such sweet enjoyment to

Me. I delight my mind running

Free. There are wonderful sights to see

Book in hand there’s no place I’d rather be.

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 106, “Ghost and Hollow,” #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisper‘s blog Tuesday Tanka Challenge. I have written an Autumnal Cinquain and a Halloween Etheree.

Leaves fall

Softly, silent

Like phantoms in the mist

The del’s full of the spirit of

Autumn.

———–

Dense

The mist

Hallowed ground

Long dead spirits

Wake to move around

None have a beating heart

Nor a conscience to be found

All lost souls their bodies are void

Endless chill invades their empty souls

Their time is now Autmn and Halloween.

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY TANKA TUESDAY POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 101, “PLAN & FINISH,” SYNONYMSONLY

This is my entry for Colleen’s Weekly Tuesday Tanka.

This week’s prompts to use as Synonyms only are Plan and Finish.

Autumn.

Autumn has arrived

She has brought new ideas

Glad to be alive

I walk through shades of her

Summer’s end is bitter sweet.
