#TANKATUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 243, #SYNONYMSONLY

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY

Are you ready to choose some syllables to use in your syllabic poetry this week? Ruth, from RuthKlein’s Scribbles, selected your two words:

I chose to write an ETHEREE this week, my synonyms for Family are Clans and relations, and for peace, Tranquility and war free.

Family & Peace.(Synonyms)

We
Bluster
And bemoan
The shortcomings
Of extended clans
While calming the waters
Others raise fires with their fans.
Will things come to a bloody pass?
Or tranquility encompass us?
And so relations we will be, war free.

COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 199 #EKPHRASTIC #PHOTOPROMPT OR #SYNONYMSONLY

Our Hostess with thmostest Colleen said :”You can choose the Ekphrastic  #PhotoPrompt provided by Trent McDonald, or you can choose the #SynonymsOnly challenge using the words “MOVE & MAKE” provided by David Ellis.

OR… You can do both! It’s up to you#

This week I have decided to write a Etheree using Trent MacDonald’s photo and David Ellis‘s words. I used glide, skimming and sailing for move and create and manufacture for make.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA: Milford Pond

I
Glide through
Life, serene
Swanlike skimming
Not a ripple seen
Sailing through like a dream
Nothing betrays the madness
Created by my feet beneath
Autumn colours also manufacturer
A gentle serenity to fool all.

Lyndy and

Me. Playing in

The yard happily.

Four five six young and free

Life was good for Lyndy and me

Daddy made the scooter, we shared

Such happy days, we were free from care

Seven eight nine, endless days in the sun shine.

Time

Flew by

For Lyndy

And little me too.

Playing in fairy dells,

Ten, eleven Twelve

Summers were good to Lindy

And me.Thirteen fourteen fifteen.

We grew up cousin Lyndy and me

Close together, wherever we may be.
