#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge: #Poet’s choice – Words

It has been a LONG while, since I wrote any poetry, but, I felt the need, today, and what better time to do do it, than when my sis, Colleen, has her Poet’s Choice challenge?

Words, all jumbled up
Swimming around in my mind
Stories to be told
The time has come, to allow
Tales to come to life, again

#Tanka Tuesday On A Thursday – Finding Myself #Etheree

It’s Colleen’s syllabic poetry challenge!

Search & Lost

Set
Adrift
In my thoughts
Hunting wildly
Looking for the truth
The answers to my 'Whys'
Questions keep bombarding me
Will I find what I'm looking for?
Possibly not, but really, I know
The solution to all my woes, is me

#Tanka Tuesday (On a Thursday) #Poetry CHhallenge NO. 220, #Poetschoice #Etheree – In Memorandum

Colleen’s Syllabic poetry challenge this week is Poet’s Choice:

Souls
Traverse
From body
To higher plains
Today you leave us
I can feel you, above
As you begin your journey
Fly high, my darling Mamaji
As you leave, you take a piece of me
You may be gone, but never forgotten

This morning, at 5am, UK time, I will be attending the funeral of my beloved uncle, my Mamaji. This is dedicated to him. 🙏🏽💜

#TANKA TUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 219, #SPECIFICFORM

Colleen’s Syllabic Poetry Challenge:

For this poetry challenge, you can write a haiku and/or senryu on any subject you choose.

I’ve gone for the simple 2/3/2 form of Senryu. Hope you enjoy!

Waking
Next to you
Is bliss

Torture
From the night
Finished

You see
You snore - Loud
No sleep

#Tanka Tuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge NO. 218 #Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt #Senryu

Colleen’s back with her weekly Syllabic Poetry prompt! It’s Ekphrastic prompt week, which means a poem inspired by a photo!

Masking my sadness
Strumming the strings of distress
Trying to soothe thoughts
