Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 126, “Poet’s Choice of Words”

It’s the first Tuesday of the month and that means we can choose our own words and there is no need to use synonyms .

I have chosen to do a Nonet today in honour of the coming spring. My two words are Spring and Hope.

Rules here

Hope springs eternal this time of year.

Winter lingers but have no fear

New life awaits to burst forth

Chill winds hover from north

Tiny buds grow

White, blue, golden

Emboldened

Spring is

Hope.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly, #Tanka Tuesday, #Poetry Challenge No. 117, “Poet’s Choice of Words”,

This part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka. This week as it’s the first of not only the month but the year. That means we can use any words we like.

My words are. Wine Bottle I decided to do an Etheree.

Wine

Bottle

Red or white

Even rosé.

Light or full bodied

To tantalise taste buds

Glass container of liquid

Open with cap or pop the cork

You have the power to raise spirits

A joy to behold a bottle of wine

🍷

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge NO. 109, Happy November – “Poets Choice of Words”

It’s the first Tuesday this month and as per Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisperer’s rules I am choosing Red and White to use Synonymously.

Rules for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge

Oh! Crimson as blood

Mixed with pure as driven snow

Late Autumn, still grow

The birds will eat the berries

How long will the roses last.
