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

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
