COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 135 #SYNONYMSONLY – Pretty & Ugly

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!

Pretty & Ugly

Composing, Fantasy, Mystical

A beautiful face
Can mask a grotesque nature
Be wary of looks
You think you're seeing one thing
Truth is something different

    Well put, Ritu. This reminds me of the book I just finished reading by Jenifer Ruff.
