My word it’s Wednesday again and time for Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Décima Challenge. Ron says “You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (BRANCH and Swift). and this Décima Challenge of NOISE in the C rhyme lineThis means you could write a haiku post using the prompt words. Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.
The 2 CHALLENGES are SEPARATE but CAN BE combined if YOU CHOOSE to do so. I choose to link. Here is my Haiku.

Swaying in the wind root and branch.
Time dances endlessly along
Punctuated by song bird’s song
All is written noughts left to chance.
The Forrest sees all of life’s dance.
Nature likes to watch the eons chase.
Across her planet at such pace.
She knows her cycle will repeat
Winter’s bitter cold, Summer’s heat.
Nature is happy by God’s grace

#WRITEPHOTO – NEWBORNS

KL Caley at Novel Ideas has offered to take on Sue Vincent’s #writephoto weekly challenge now Sue has moved on to a higher plain.

For visually challenged writersthe image shows a group of mother sheep about to give birth, with one newly arrived lamb visible.

The New Arrivals – Image by KL Caley.

It had been such a long night, cold as well. Liam was exhausted, not one of the Ewes had produced a single lamb….not one had gone into labour!

“Hey sleepy head”, it was Gena, “how’s it going. Looks like you’ve had a productive night.” Liam yawned and stretched as he accepted a hot mug of coffee and a foil wrapped bacon sandwich.

“It’s been a slow night he said, not a single sign of any of the Ewes having a single lamb! ” Gena looked at him oddly… “Looks like your wrong there. What’s that,” she said motioning to the far side of the pen. “What’s that, scotch mist?”

Liam could not believe his eyes, or ears. There was Millie with baby Mollie, and the others were looking and sounding as if things were on the move.

Nature knows what’s best.

Spring, renewal and new life.

It’s all a circle

Rough & Season

Bitter chill night fall
The din of roosting birds call
Harsh winter Season
Hope they find food tomorrow.
Each ones loss is our sorrow

A Tanka for Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

Thursday photo prompt: Glass #writephoto

Today is Thursday and if Sue Vincent was not fighting her own battle she would of set us her weekly #writephoto. So here is one I wrote back in November 2019 .

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a bay with clear, glassy water, reflecting blue sky and clouds. The bay is surrounded by green hills, one of which may be an island in the distance.

Glass.

What lies beneath the surface.

The reflection of Earth’s soul.

It draws you in, swallowing you whole.

The cloudy blue sky full of grace

Look deeper and you will see

The essence of you and me

See in the reflective glass

The beauty of your soul

Let Nature set your goal.

Be blessed.

COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 198, #POET’SCHOICE

Colleen says : Guess what? It’s the first challenge for my favourite month of October… you know what that means! Poets, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you.

NEW RULES: Let’s make this challenge a true poet’s choice! Use any syllabic poetry form that you’d like. As long as there are syllables to count, you’re ready! Be creative. If your form is something new, teach us how to write it. Have fun!

My choice this week is extra special as Colleen has given us free reign as to poetic form. I have chosen to put two together. An Acrostic Nonet.

The contents comes from deep within me. It could be read as a personal relationship, with either another person or thing, or as a lament to nature and our current world troubles.

Autumn Cry.

As always tapped under your control
Useless I am no longer whole
Tell me how I lost the light
Undone I’m caught in flight
Morning brings no hope
No kindness spoke
Cry freedom
Real needs
Yearn.

Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday

It’s the third week of the month! Time for an Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt

This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). Lisa Thompson, from last month’s challenge, has provided the photo for this month’s challenge:

In these dark days I remember the saying my hubby often uses now about our leaders. Who try to keep us in the dark and give very mixed messages and ever changing information. I have chosen a Tanka to express my feelings.

Mushroom management.

Bright read for danger
Upwards pursuing the light
Escaping darkness.
Our lives are managed like this
Kept in the dark and fed shit.
