Six

O’clock

Amazon

Has been to call

And left the parcel

Outside against the wall.

Jen arrives and parks her bike

This house is still not quite a home

For he is away and she’s alone.

Then she sees the package outside the door.

Full of excitement she gathers it up.

She rushed in doors to open it

It’s a beautiful photo book

Delighted she takes a look

There he is full of smiles

Waving to her from

Across the miles

Suddenly

They are

One.

This is the new mid month photo challenge for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka. I have chosen to tell a story in the form of a Double Etheree.

COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 133 #SYNONYMSONLY Plan and Spend.

This week Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge is to use the words Plan and Spend Synonymously. I have chosen a Tanka this week.

Father Love.

I intend to stay

And while away this short day

In your company

I aspire to be happy

It’s my design to pass time.

Rules here

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 128 #SynonymsOnly: Spring and Sing

 

Season’s Joy

******

Life abounds

New and fresh I bounce

Birds chirrup

Like my  heart

A  chorus for this season

Jump high voice my joy

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 127 #SynonymsOnly: Lead and Follow

Show me where

My life’s path should go

Guide me through

Teach me by

Kindness as your disciple

To accept your word.

 

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 126, “Poet’s Choice of Words”

It’s the first Tuesday of the month and that means we can choose our own words and there is no need to use synonyms .

I have chosen to do a Nonet today in honour of the coming spring. My two words are Spring and Hope.

Rules here

Hope springs eternal this time of year.

Winter lingers but have no fear

New life awaits to burst forth

Chill winds hover from north

Tiny buds grow

White, blue, golden

Emboldened

Spring is

Hope.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 123 #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro‘s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. The two prompts are words to use synonously are Meaning and Passion.

This week I have chosen the simple Tanka, I love the Tanka.

True desire for life

It consumes like a fire

Urging the senses

To devour and embrace

Lust for the definition.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 120, “Cold & Storm,” #SynonymsOnly

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 2019 Weekly, #Tanka Tuesday, #Poetry Challenge No. 117, “Poet’s Choice of Words”,

This part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka. This week as it’s the first of not only the month but the year. That means we can use any words we like.

My words are. Wine Bottle I decided to do an Etheree.

Wine

Bottle

Red or white

Even rosé.

Light or full bodied

To tantalise taste buds

Glass container of liquid

Open with cap or pop the cork

You have the power to raise spirits

A joy to behold a bottle of wine

🍷
