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

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

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge #Tanka – Autumn & Leaves

Colleen’s alternative poetry challenge NaNoWriMo is running: giving us a pair of words and for us to then use not them, but synonyms in our poems!

This weeks words to switch are~:

Autumn & Leaves

Snow, Autumn, Leaves, Winter, Leaf

I used Indian summer, and fall for autumn and farewell and foliage for leaves, within a tanka.

Indian summer
I bid you a fond farewell
For winter is here
The gold foliage of fall
Gives way to cold, bare winter

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge #Tanka – 31/10 – Fright & Night

Colleen is away now for FIVE weeks, completing #NaNoWriMo… but she’s left her challenges for those weeks… here!

The twist is you have to use her words but as synonyms, not the actual words!

So this week, we have

Fright & Night

Hand, Fear, Despair, Expression, Scared

On All Hallows Eve
All the spooky ghouls come out
Ready to have fun
Strange things begin to happen
Once darkness covers the land

I need to mention a helper I had when penning these… Sonu Singh!

Sonu Singh the Muse!

First, a Haiku:

Forest, Dark, Fog, Gloomy, Mystical

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

Then a Cinquain:

Graves, Forest, Creepy, Halloween, Cross

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

Man Lady Bug Worst Halloween Costume Bad Halloween Costumes for kids for adults inappropriate wtf worst tattoos bad tattoos awkward family photos funny costumes funny halloween family

Seductive costume
Effect not quite what was planned
Less sexy more weird

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

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.
