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

Colleen’s poetry challenge this week is using the words

Shadow & Light


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
