August Stanza. 16

It is August and so Jane is doing : a chain of images each one suggested by the last word in the preceding poem. They’ll be short, a single image of just a few lines. It will be interesting to see where it ends up by the end of the month.

Kat will be doing short 3,4, or 5 line poems no syllable counts of rhymes, starting with the word ‘August’ on the first day. The last word of the poem will be the first word of day two’s poem, and so on until the end of the month.

Finally I shall be doing all types of poetry but each poem will start with the last word in the preceding poem.

Today’s poem is a Haibun.

Care for caring’s sake

Care weighs heavy on me. The light struggles with the dark clouds. I sit in the lounge as the clock ticks and the rain hits the window. I breath slowly trying to rid the fear and pain within. Events from the evening before fill my mind. Words taken out of context only tell half story. I care when I should not, it will be taken up and thrown back at me.

Care for caring’s sake

Rips my soul, exposed it ache

It’s my soul that breaks.

Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge No.64

This part of Colleen Chesebro, the Fairy Whisperer’s Tuesday Tanka. I have long wanted to try a Haibun so I have written one below, it includes a Tanka so I think that is within the rules. 

Not having tried this disapline before I hope it’s not too far from the bar. It is infact for me a New Experience.

The words we have to use synonyms for are Experience and New. I have used the synonyms for the words in the Tanka, felt for experience and morn and another dawn for new.

 Flight From Fear

I sit here in the silence,even the traffic has not started it’s heavy thundering.

Lonely, not from the lack of company  more from emptiness inside. Strange how it gnaws at me, a real pain.

The room is silent and clam not even the ticking of a clock. Quietly the dog moves in her sleep.

I see no tree lights

Lost here in the chill of morn

In flight from night frights.

I have have felt all this before

This is just another dawn.

I walk all alone

Demons snapping at my heels

Scared and with no home

Through the kingdom of the moon

Fear above me swoops and whields.
