Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 130 #SynonymsOnly #Haiga

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry challenge!It’s Tuesday, and that means Colleen’s Tanka Challenge! Of course, just providing a couple of words would be far too simple, so we have two words, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

I lie… it’s the beginning of the month so we have this as our prompt…

It’s the first of the month! Happy April! Choose your own words!

So, I have chosen spring and world.

Was feeling artistic so I decided to paint a picture to go with my Tanka, which makes it a bit of a Haiga too!

Video proof that I painted… taken by Lil Princess!

And the Haiga/Tanka

Spring has sprung
Flowers open their petals
And search for the sun
Blush pink blossons grace the trees
The world is waking once more
