Probes the gap between her

But there nothing there

The

Winters

Finally

Here, all other

Seasons now are spent

Nature secures her seeds

Deep away from winter’s chill

Her creatures sleep protected too

Whilst winter does her very best to freeze

Mother Nature sole caretaker of all.

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.
