Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #104 – Free Choice – Happy October #MicroPoetry #Etheree

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

This week, the words were;

Free Choice!

It’s the first of the month so Colleen has given us free rein!

As it is October, I went all ghoulish! And attempted my first Etheree!

Ghosts Gespenter Spooky Horror Souls Creep

Ghosts
Eerie
Roaming free
Spooky beings
Frightening others
Unintentionally
Finding their place in this world
Only looking for acceptance
Wanting to live alongside us all
Near those loved ones they have left behind them
