#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 288: #Tastetherainbow-Colour Poetry


Its Tuesday again and time for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. Colleen says “Hello everyone. Happy September! This week, choose your own syllabic form and a color to feature in your syllabic poem. Think about the different ways you can use color in a poem.”

I have chosen a Tanka today. As I am going to a wedding later this week I have used it loosely as my subject. My colours are red and white.

The bride flows in white
Red-blooded groom full of lust
Hearts beating with pride
All part of Nature’s big plan
Yes it’s all procreation

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Here we are for another #TankaTuesday poetry challenge! Are you ready for a theme prompt? Sarah selected this month’s theme:

LESSONS FROM NATURE

Use the theme above to write your choice of syllabic poem. Your poem must include or be about a lesson from nature.

Some years ago I was walking home and I saw a mushroom that had pushed it’s way through the Tarmac at the base of a lamppost. The tiny soft mushroom had broken through the Tarmac to grow and flourish next to the lampost. How could this happen? How can something so soft and small triumph over Tarmac and steel? Nature/ Gaia knows more than us …we should sit at her knees and learn from her but we do not. Man goes his own sweet stupid way.

I chose to write a double Butterfly Cinquain is an unrhymed, nine-line syllabic poem with 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2 syllables per line.

Tarmac
Man made and hard
Mushroom Gaia’s handwork
Needs to leave the dark so it thrives
So soft
Determined and triumphant it
Pushes aside man-made
Covering of
Tarmac.

Mistake
Man takes no heed
Of Gaia’s message, clear
She will be thriving long after
Man has
Lost his tenterive hold on earth
She’ll lay claim to his work
We could have learnt
From her .

There now rock steady
Rolling gently with the flow
Mother Nature’s son.

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Here we are for another #TankaTuesday poetry challenge! Bought to us by Colleen Chesebro, this week it’s a Theme prompt selected this week by Harmony

This month’s theme is: “The Longest Day”

I chose to write a Diatelle but with a cheat.

The Diatelle is a fun, syllable counting form like the etheree with a twist. The syllable structure of the diatelle is as follows: 1/2/3/4/6/8/10/12/10/8/6/4/3/2/1, but unlike an ethere, has a set rhyme pattern of abbcbccaccbcbba. This poetry form may be written on any subject matter and looks best center aligned in a diamond shape.

The Diatelle form was created by Bradley Vrooman.

My cheat was I wrote in the alloted syllables per line but I wrote free verse… Sometimes rules need bending.

The longest day.

She
Rises
Too early
For me flashing
Throwing her glory round
Like a cloak of many colours
Gold, red and pink she blinds me with her light
Her warmth already fierce yet she will run the course.
By noon she has all but the mad beaten.
As afternoon spreads out she bakes us .
Languid we hide in shade
Evening she
Wains, colours
And heat
Fade.

It breathes deeply nature’s prize
A temple of green.

Secrets plans and preparations, go against the grain.
It’s high summer and nature is guest of honour, and host.
Celebrate life, music in rivers and skies and food in the field. Blossom and grow.

Tingling in your body and your hair stands on end.
Your heart beats faster skipping beats, sweat prickles your brow .
Anticipation and excitement are natures healthy drugs, keeping the world turning
