Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 112, “Cold & Safe,” #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro‘s, Weekly Tuesday Tanka. The words to use Synonymously are Cold and Safe.

I have used Coleen’s beautiful gif to enhance me Etheree.

The

Winters

Finally

Here, all other

Seasons now are spent

Nature secures her seeds

Deep away from winter’s chill

Her creatures sleep protected too

Whilst winter does her very best to freeze

Mother Nature sole caretaker of all.

Lets

Party

A bunch of

Years truly lived

A good life well used

Many experiences

To honour with happiness

Too vast to count. Bearing witness.

A life full to the brim with good things.

Do not be sad remember it with joy.

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 110, “Pleasant &s Read,” #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisper’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. This week my fast growing favourite form of poetry. The Etheree.

To

Imbibe

Of a book

Under a tree

Brings out such happy

And contented feelings

In me. Imagination

Running happy and free for me

Joyful pictures in my head I see

Comfortably I devour the words

Or

Infront

Of blazing

Flames, a drink in

Hand,devouring

Squiggles off of the page.

Brings such sweet enjoyment to

Me. I delight my mind running

Free. There are wonderful sights to see

Book in hand there’s no place I’d rather be.

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 108, “Afraid & Grave,” #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebroof The Fairy Whisper’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. This week I have chosen another Etheree.

Fear

In the

Cemetery

Deep crawling fear.

The ground freshly dug

From the inside up, out

Something has escaped but what

Fright tingles the spine, draining blood

Petrified at the sight of the hole.

Fear for the fate of your immortal soul.

Autumn Tanka.

Magic entwines me

As leaves fall softly around

Gold and red colours

Summer’s spirit invades me

As Autumn bewitches all.

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 106, “Ghost and Hollow,” #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisper‘s blog Tuesday Tanka Challenge. I have written an Autumnal Cinquain and a Halloween Etheree.

Leaves fall

Softly, silent

Like phantoms in the mist

The del’s full of the spirit of

Autumn.

———–

Dense

The mist

Hallowed ground

Long dead spirits

Wake to move around

None have a beating heart

Nor a conscience to be found

All lost souls their bodies are void

Endless chill invades their empty souls

Their time is now Autmn and Halloween.
