Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge 14/11 Smell & Cosy

Colleen’s Poetry challenge this month includes words which we can’t use, but instead, in their place, we need to use synonyms!

This week we have:

Smell & Cosy

Two for this week:

The first, neither a haiku nor a senryu, as it’s not about nature, nor love, but still, a 5/7/5 form!

Cookies, Baking, Fresh, Homemade

Scent of comfort

Comfort
Scented moments
Snuggling, cuddling, hugging
Closeness found within embraces

Trees looking eerie
Dark colours, partially clothed
This season’s costume

Eerie
Darkened costumes
Frightening, Haunting, Shocking
Swaying branches causing nightmares
Creepy

Ritu 2017

And a Senryu, pure silliness!: Used Weird as a synonym for Eerie

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge: Quiet & Space

Colleen’s poetry challenge gives us these words to play with:

Quiet & Space

Just a couple of takes…

Cinquain

Silence
Tranquil setting
Soothing, calming, hushing
Serenity in all spaces
Quiet

Ritu 2017

Senryu

Quietly he creeps
Into that space in my heart
Filling it with lust

Ritu 2017

Haiku

Without human ears
A space is filled with quiet
Until someone comes

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Tuesday Challenge No. 54: GHOST & HAUNT #Cinquain #Senryu #Haiku

Lovely Colleen has given us some great words for the Poetry challenge this week!

Ghost & Haunt

I’m trying my hand at the Cinquain:

Haunting
Ghostly beings
Floating, stalking, spooking
Chilling feelings spreading about
Scary

Ritu 2017

And a Senryu (Hope I got it right this time!)

The ghost of your love
Haunting my life forever
I’ll never forget

Ritu 2017

Then a haiku!

A ghostly presence
Haunting the doorsteps all round
Pumpkin ghoulies grin

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 53 – MIST & SHAPE #Cinquain #Senryu

Colleen has added a new twist to her poetry challenge as it has entered its second year!

No longer just a Haiku, Tanka or Haibun, but she has added Senryu and Cinquain to the list too!

I have never written them before so I thought I’d have a go!

Hope I make sense!

The prompt words are:

Mist & Shape

Cinquain

Morning
Misty figures
Shaping, forming, floating
Chilly weather sparking winter
Dawning

Ritu 2017

Senryu

A mist of perfume
Setting over your form
A scent so sensual

Ritu 2017

I replaced shape with form in the Senryu…. Hope you enjoyed!

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
