COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 113, HAPPY DECEMBER! POETS CHOICE OF WORDS #MicroPoetry #Etheree #DoubleEtheree

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! so we get to choose our own words this week!

Poet’s Choice

Today I am writing a tribute to Christmas at school… In Double Etheree form, from the kid’s and the teacher’s perspective!

Awe
Wonder
Child-like glee
Decorations
Christmas lights twinkling
Upon a wonky tree
Handmade cards for family
Glitter strewn all over the floor
Ongoing nativity practices
Welcome to the classroom festive season!

Papework piling up, deadlines looming
Trying to teach hyperactive kids
Hungry for Santa and presents
Being the voice of thirty
As kids forget songs
Smiling inanely
Grateful for gifts
Thankful for
Term end
Peace

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

Peace
Around
Pure white out
Landscapes unspoiled
Untrodden white snow
Branches bow from the weight
A crisp feel to the cold air 
As pure as nature intended
Until us creatures begin to roam
Wreaking havoc upon Nature's beauty

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 111, “CELEBRATE & NUMBER,” #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 twowords, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

And there are a few forms of poetry that we can use… Tanka, Senryu, Haibun, Haiku, Etheree… so, here goes!

The words we can’t use this week are:

Celebrate & Number

So… here goes! A Reverse Etheree this week.

A huge amount of family and friends
Gathering together to rejoice
To appreciate each other
And all that life has given
Turkeys slowly roasting
The sides to die for
A meal for all
Thanksgiving
Sharing
Love

Future & Hope

Direct senryu relating to our home situation right now, as sickness bugs have hit, as well as throat viruses… not great…

The future looks bleak
Sickness seeping all around
Hoping for good health

#SoCS November 17/18 – Roll/Role

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “roll/role.” Use one, use both, it’s entirely up to you. Enjoy!

I love a bread roll.

A beautiful crusty fresh baked roll is the best, slathered with butter and jam… mmmmm!

Gong back to general bread rolls though…

You might not call it a roll. Here in the UK there are so many different names:

  • Barm
  • Bap
  • Roll
  • Cob

Those are the ones I know, anyway, but check this infographic out…

Fascinating, isn’t it? And rather crazy!

Shows the important role bread plays in our life here!

Catch ya later Peeps! Happy Saturday!
