Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 140 #SynonymsOnly

It’s Tuesday again and time for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

This week I have chosen to do a Nonet.

Our two words for this week are

Light & Dark

His soul was blacker than any night

Lost from the warmth of day was he.

Inocence,pure and bright she

Drawn together where they

Just like night and day

Opposite sides

Two faces

Yin and

Yan

Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Clear and Nature.#No.138.

Hello everyone it’s Tuesday and time for Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka.

Here are our two words for this week: and we must only use synonyms.

Clear & Nature

I have decided to do a Nonet using the synonyms, crystal, transparent and open for Clear, and Gia, essence and mother earth for Nature

Waterfall.

Crystal water falls sparkling so bright

It’s one of Gia’s true wonders

Transparent fractals of light

In essence and colours

A celebration

Of mother earth’s

Beautiful

Open

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY TANKA TUESDAY POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 101, “PLAN & FINISH,” SYNONYMSONLY

This is my entry for Colleen’s Weekly Tuesday Tanka.

This week’s prompts to use as Synonyms only are Plan and Finish.

Autumn.

Autumn has arrived

She has brought new ideas

Glad to be alive

I walk through shades of her

Summer’s end is bitter sweet.

Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge No.64

This part of Colleen Chesebro, the Fairy Whisperer’s Tuesday Tanka. I have long wanted to try a Haibun so I have written one below, it includes a Tanka so I think that is within the rules. 

Not having tried this disapline before I hope it’s not too far from the bar. It is infact for me a New Experience.

The words we have to use synonyms for are Experience and New. I have used the synonyms for the words in the Tanka, felt for experience and morn and another dawn for new.

 Flight From Fear

I sit here in the silence,even the traffic has not started it’s heavy thundering.

Lonely, not from the lack of company  more from emptiness inside. Strange how it gnaws at me, a real pain.

The room is silent and clam not even the ticking of a clock. Quietly the dog moves in her sleep.

I see no tree lights

Lost here in the chill of morn

In flight from night frights.

I have have felt all this before

This is just another dawn.
