Colleen's 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Etheree #Haiku #Poetry Challenge No. 161 #PhotoPrompt – Henna

This week, Colleen has a photo prompt, chosen by my blog sis, Willow!

Stains
Hennaed
Signalling
Celebration
The deeper the stain
The stronger the love of
Mother-in-law to-be
His name tattooed on her hand
A challenge, to find it, himself
A game to prove his patience and love
Once found, their true exploration begins

Henna patterns stain
The hands of the bride-to-be
Time for married bliss

Henna stains
The hands of the bride
Married bliss

Henna
A bride's hands
Married

Colleen’s Prompt

Colleen's 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 160 #SynonymsOnly

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! And only syllabic poetry!

“CALM & PRESENT”

In this moment, I 
Feel a sense of peace within
Relaxing my mind
A gift from the universe
All stars and planets aligned

Presence #writephoto Colleen's 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 159, #PoetsChoice

I’ve decided to combine two prompts for this one piece of syllabic poetry, a haiku/senryu with feeling, Hairyu, anyone?

I have combined the photo from Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt, and entered this in to Colleen#s weekly syllabic poetry challenge, #TankaTuesday. This week it is Poet’s choice of words!

Six silent sentries
Watching our every move
Nature's Guardians

COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY on a Thursday #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 145 #PHOTOPROMPT

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Prompt:

It’s mid month, so we have a photo prompt this week.

A
World where
The ground just
Disappeared
Only safe creatures
Were the birds and the fish
Did you four legged creatures
Find help on Noah's wooden ark?
He promised to save two of each one
It rained for forty days and forty nights
Slowly clouds receded, the sun shone
Water began to go away
Lone dove bore an olive branch
The tops of trees were seen
The world was rid of
Evil people
At least for
A few
Years

It’s Tuesday Thursday, 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!

Enchant & Fly

Key Birds, Migratory Bird, Migration

Soaring through the sky
Mesmerising formations
They're off for winter
