Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge – Beliefs & Strange #MicroPoetry #Tanka

Colleen’s tanka challenge, as always includes the premise that only synonyms for the prompt words must be used…

This week, the words were;

Beliefs & Strange

I penned two verses; one a tanka and the other a cinquain.

Hands World Map Global Earth Globe Blue Cr

War, famine, anger
Conflicts tearing us apart
Will it ever stop?
Extraordinary hope
That our world will become one
