Carefree

Walking through the day  

Without a care in the world  

Drifting like a moth  

Dancing before mingling flames  

With no need to stay or go

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2020/11/24/2020-weekly-tanka-tuesday-poetry-challenge-no-204-themeprompt/

This month’s theme is a haiku written by Sue Vincent:

clouds cover the moon,
beyond dawn’s pale horizon
sun rises unseen
.

Please use the above haiku to inspire your own syllabic poetry. There’s a lot to unpack in these words. What will your interpretation be? Go where the words take you.

Ode to Sue’s Haiku

A blanketed veil of moisture obscures the Orb of Night
At a distance morn’s bleached hues detectable at a distant perspective
Scorching star lifts up sans cognizance
A regenerated diurnal course ensues.

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 186 #SynonymsOnly

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Anita Dawes picked the two words for you to choose your synonyms from. Opposites are so fun to work with. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! https://colleenchesebro.com/2020/07/14/colleens-2020-weekly-tanka-tuesday-poetry-challenge-no-186-synonymsonly/

Here are your two words:

“BLESSED & HEX”

The Real You – An Etheree

Hexed 
 
Not you  
 
Imagine  
 
That you are blessed  
 
Because you are true  
 
To your feelings and more  
 
You have not chosen evil  
 
You have chosen to be honest  
 
People will flock toward your beauty  
 
Being around you always feels complete.

May our prayers go to the world
to stay safe and well
like a good bottle of wine,
left at home to save for a better day.
