Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #105 – Colour & Creepy #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;

Colour & Creepy

(Yup I used the English spelling for colour!)

Etheree #2 for me, and yes, I went a little macabre, thinking of death…

Ghosts Gespenter Spooky Horror Souls Creep

No more
Takes on a hue
Saved for the lifeless
An eerie calm settles
No pain for you anymore
Yet for those of us left behind
The ones who’ll never see you again
The suffering has only just begun

Ritu 2018

Welcome to Tanka Tuesday

Have a great day!
