Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge – Happy & Morose #MicroPoetry #Cinquain

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

This week, the words were;

Happy & Morose


It’s up to us, how we choose to project ourselves upon the world… We’re either yin or yang, up or down, merry or glum…

Feeling upbeat
Smiling, pleasing, charming
Positivity shines through you

Negative vibes
Moaning, fretting, bitching
Repelling any joyful thoughts

Which one are you?

Ritu 2018

    Hi, Ritu! Love the cinquains! I think we all tend to have content and morose moments. ❀

    Sis, this is fabulous!! I love the double cinquains showing the opposites. When put together they ask your age-old question: “Which one are you?” Fabulous! ❀
