#TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 256, Colleen’s Specific Form: haiku

WELCOME TO #TANKATUESDAY!

This week’s form is: Haiku.

I have decided to write three Haiku, using the three forms I know, 5/7/5, 3/5/3 and 3/2/3.

I suffer from Raynaud’s disease it was undiganosed as a child so winter is full of cold memories. I also took the music of Tori Amos as an inspiration.

I missed last week’s due to my eyes but it’s not going away over night so I am pushing forward in to this new year happy to be in such great company.

in early winter
the earth stands frozen in time
hibernation’s key.

*****

Memories
Of winter that’s past
Dreaming time

*****

Winter
Solid earth
Waiting.

the old tree creeks in
high wind, it’s heart stout and strong.
the grass bends gently.

Nature paints a picture daily
Rainbow of colours blown apart
Thrown upon the alter of art
Sping blossom bounces in gayly
Her pastel colours sway palely
Summer sails in all green and blue
Autumn’s russet and golden too.
Winter comes with a frozen lakes
Silver frosts and dainty snowflakes.
Our landscape refreshes daily.

Bend with the wind, go with the flow

So wise, with knowledge we will never know.

Bare in the winter

Silent in snow

Covered in blossom in spring

Birds nest in your branches and sing

Summer brings green leaves

And you give us shade

Autumn’s hues are a sight to behold

Silent a history of secrets you hold.

Trees know so much, they see so much. We use them to build, for warmth, for furniture. We give little back. We, humans as a race are users. Vast forests and jungles are cleared in the name of progress.

Hopefully with the splinters and ashes and discarded furniture the trees go back into mother Earth so new ones may grow.

Trees and vegetation were here before us, they will be here when we are gone.

the winter shades are threefold
chilling heads and toes.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 82: (TIME) in the B rhyme line.

The Clock is Ticking

Painfully the earth is dying
The clock’s ticking we’re out of time.
Killing mother earth is a crime.
We’ve bled her dry now she’s crying.
Save Gaia now, please start trying.
We have plundered her precious fruits
And stripped her down to her roots.
She spins so fast on her axis
As we work to avoid taxes
We’ve flattened her under our boots.

#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 248, #PHOTOPROMPT

WELCOME NoTO COLLEEN CHESEBRO’S TANKA TUESDAY!

Sangeetha, from MindFills selected the photo for this week. It’s her personal photo, so please add the image credit. Remember, we can see what’s in the image, so write your poem using the image as an inspiration.

Don’t just describe what you see in the image. Think about metaphor and allegory. Don’t forget to use imagery in your poem. Just remember to check what form you’re using. Some of the Japanese forms frown upon the use of metaphors.

I am the wild flow
you are the stay and anchor
we are stuff of life.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 380 EVER & Green.

I have written a Tanka this week.

This lush verdant land
Nature’s treasures for us all
Is this eternal
Have we pushed nature too far
Will the green go for ever.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 79: (VERVE) in the C rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

Enthusiasm and delight
Mixes with Gaia’s perfect plan
The insects are a happy gang .
Some just crawl others take to flight.
Joy da vivre keeps them up all night.
This party is full of such verve
The bugs are on an upward curve.
Butterflies, spiders, ladybugs
All bouncing mad as if on drug.
Phychedelic bugs, high on lovre.

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Décima Challenge.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 379 BUG & Rumble.

there’s a place for all
honey bees and bugs so small
all start to Rumble
nature’s rough and busy tumble
there is no time to grumble
