Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 144 #SynonymsOnly

This week Colleen has given us the prompt words Enchant and Fly. I have chosen to write a Shadorma for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

The title is Bewitched

You’re bewitched

Within her magic

Held under

Her love spell

Her charm makes your spirit soar

Born on wings of joy.

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 142, 1st of the Month #Poet’sChoice

Today is the first Tuesday in the month so we can choose our own two prompts for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

I have chosen Autumn and Age. I am using each of those words and I am using the form of a Nonet.

Life.

The sands of time run out on my life.

No too fast but the years mount up

Like the seasons we all change

I’ve become Autumnal

In this I see much

Beauty, knowledge

That comes with

Growing

Age

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 142 #SynonymsOnly Character &Wild.

Hi and welcome to this week’s Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka. This week’s words are Character & Wild. This week I have chosen a Shadorma.

What do you see.

What aspect

Of nature untamed

Can you sense

Within me

Is it love of free spirit

Or primative lust .

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 139 #Poet’sChoice

Today is the first Tuesday of this month so we get to choose the words for our prompt today. Today I want to try my hand at a Haiga. I have chosen the two words, Precious and Deep. My life is a little Deep at the moment and there are many things there in so precious to me.

Beware

This is part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

Six

O’clock

Amazon

Has been to call

And left the parcel

Outside against the wall.

Jen arrives and parks her bike

This house is still not quite a home

For he is away and she’s alone.

Then she sees the package outside the door.

Full of excitement she gathers it up.

She rushed in doors to open it

It’s a beautiful photo book

Delighted she takes a look

There he is full of smiles

Waving to her from

Across the miles

Suddenly

They are

One.

This is the new mid month photo challenge for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka. I have chosen to tell a story in the form of a Double Etheree.

COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 133 #SYNONYMSONLY Plan and Spend.

This week Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge is to use the words Plan and Spend Synonymously. I have chosen a Tanka this week.

Father Love.

I intend to stay

And while away this short day

In your company

I aspire to be happy

It’s my design to pass time.

Rules here

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 128 #SynonymsOnly: Spring and Sing

 

Season’s Joy

******

Life abounds

New and fresh I bounce

Birds chirrup

Like my  heart

A  chorus for this season

Jump high voice my joy

This week I have  chosen  to  write  a  Shadorma   about  God  and Faith. For  Colleen‘s Weekly  Tanka Challenge

Show me where

My life’s path should go

Guide me through

Teach me by

Kindness as your disciple

To accept your word.

 

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. 123 #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro‘s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. The two prompts are words to use synonously are Meaning and Passion.

This week I have chosen the simple Tanka, I love the Tanka.

True desire for life

It consumes like a fire

Urging the senses

To devour and embrace

Lust for the definition.
