#TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 256, Colleen’s Specific Form: haiku

WELCOME TO #TANKATUESDAY!

This week’s form is: Haiku.

I have decided to write three Haiku, using the three forms I know, 5/7/5, 3/5/3 and 3/2/3.

I suffer from Raynaud’s disease it was undiganosed as a child so winter is full of cold memories. I also took the music of Tori Amos as an inspiration.

I missed last week’s due to my eyes but it’s not going away over night so I am pushing forward in to this new year happy to be in such great company.

in early winter
the earth stands frozen in time
hibernation’s key.

*****

Memories
Of winter that’s past
Dreaming time

*****

Winter
Solid earth
Waiting.

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 216 #SYNONYMSONLY

Hi everyone it is Tuesday and time for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday. This week I am going to answer Colleen’s challenge to try a new disapline. I am going to attempt a Sedoka. What is a Sedoka?

Ken, from Rivrvlogr shares a Sedoka, which is an unrhymed poem composed of two katauta. A katauta is able to standalone, with three lines and a syllable pattern of 5-7-7. A Sedoka therefore has the syllable count: 5-7-7, 5-7-7. Each katauta must be able to be read independently, but also create a cohesive singular work in the Sedoka.

Today’s words are from the lovey Sally Cronin and I must use them synonymously.

Eager and Hope.

Spring seems impatient
Ready to bust and blossom
Full of anticipation
Winter’s not done yet.
White her icy cloak folded
Any second to unfurl

Wordless Wednesday on Thursday! Winter Rainbow 🌈

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 43: (SPRING) in the A rhyme line.

Wednesday and it time for Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Déima challenge.

You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (BARE and Full). and this is my link from Monday. Challenge of SPRING in the A rhyme line. This means you could write a haiku post using the prompt words. Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.
The two challanges are separatebut can be combined if we choose to do so.

Awaiting Spring. A Décima from the birds.

Berries are red, the birds sing
We’ll eat them all and have our fill
Needing full tums to beat the chill
Time is harsh twixt Winter and Spring.
Ground hard covered in icy bling.
Water frozen it turns to ice.
We strive on as with death we dice.
At night we huddle where we roost
Humans spread seed, our diets boost.
So we sing for them,to be nice.

Trees shiver limbs bare
Roots struggle in frozen ground
Winter’s in full flare.

Ronovan says : You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (ROUGH and Season) mine was a Tanka and it’s here.and this Décima Challenge of CARE in the D rhyme lineThis means you could write a haiku post using the prompt words. Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.
The 2 challenges are separate but can be  combined if you choose to do so.

As always I chose to combine.

Rough Season Décima.

Bitter chill as night and hush falls.
The hedgerows full of sleeping beasts.
That this season often defeats.
Tomorrow and the hunt still calls.
The loss of hungry beasts appalls.
Nature only keeps the strongest
Winter’s cold winds last the longest.
Rough her rules may the weak take care.
She forges onwards harsh but fair.
Until Spring blossoms newly pressed.

Winter Solstice.

Cold  the  winter, bare  the  trees

The  berries are  all long  gone

Harsh  the  wind , the  water set  to  freeze

Still, hush all around  not even a  bird’s  song.

Expectant  they  wait, as  they  always do

For  the  flap  of  wings  that brings  the  news

Frost in  the  morning  and  the  evening  too

Tempers  fray and  sort  is the  fuse.

Finally  his  wings  are  heard approaching

Excitement  grows  for  the  news  he  brings

He has  seen  the  change  encroaching

The dark  has reached  it’s  length,  he  sings

The messenger,  the  lone  black  Raven

Tells them  they  have  reached  the  Soltice

Rejoice and  make  your praise  to  heaven

The Light will now  return, we can prepare  the feast.

Time passages.

Cold

And dark

November

Has now arrived

Nights rent assunder

Loud, bright pyrotechnics

Days short of light, nights coal black

North winds, morning frosts, leaves flying

We watch the old year slowly dieing

Time’s fast passage whips us on to winter.
