Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 47 – #Haiku #Tanka: Shadow & Light

Colleen’s poetry challenge this week is using the words

Shadow & Light

080717_1817_ColleensWee9.png

Today I  am incorporating a Tanka and a Haiku into a single poemy thing!

Never seeing light
Forever in the shadows
Feasting or darkness
Negativity can hurt
If you starve it of all light

***

Keep your shadows small
Surrounding yourself with light
Make life positive
