Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 53 – MIST & SHAPE #Cinquain #Senryu

Colleen has added a new twist to her poetry challenge as it has entered its second year!

No longer just a Haiku, Tanka or Haibun, but she has added Senryu and Cinquain to the list too!

I have never written them before so I thought I’d have a go!

Hope I make sense!

The prompt words are:

Mist & Shape


Misty figures
Shaping, forming, floating
Chilly weather sparking winter

Ritu 2017


A mist of perfume
Setting over your form
A scent so sensual

Ritu 2017

I replaced shape with form in the Senryu…. Hope you enjoyed!

    Loved them both but, the senryu, remember it’s about human follies, not the scent/perfume itself, As it is its a haiku, turn it into a senryu by changing the ‘a’ to ‘your’ so it reads, “Your scent so sensual”, With much respect,
