I’m entertaining
Such imaginary thoughts
Do no good to me
Sometimes I overthink things
Making mountains of molehills

Faking feeling it
Imagining you hit it
Pretending pleasure

You lead me through the darkness
Aiming for the light
With your advice, I’ll reach
What’s written in my kismet

You just need an appetite
To taste all those experiences
And season your days
The best way for you

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge Family & Thanks

So that Colleen went and left us for a month to chase her NaNo dreams, but she didn’t leave us without… oh no, she left us a challenge and a half.

A list of prompt word pairs that she wants in poetic form, but as SYNONYMS, not the actual words!

So, this week, we have

Thanks & Family

Here’s a Cinquain

 

Children, Play, Rock, Swing, Leisure

Children
Tiny copies
Needing, wanting, loving
Grateful for our progeny
Offspring

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
Cookies baking in the oven

And a cinquain:

People, Couple, Hug, Love, Man, Woman

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