#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge: #Poet’s choice – Words

It has been a LONG while, since I wrote any poetry, but, I felt the need, today, and what better time to do do it, than when my sis, Colleen, has her Poet’s Choice challenge?

Words, all jumbled up
Swimming around in my mind
Stories to be told
The time has come, to allow
Tales to come to life, again

#Tanka Tuesday On A Thursday – Finding Myself #Etheree

It’s Colleen’s syllabic poetry challenge!

Search & Lost

In my thoughts
Hunting wildly
Looking for the truth
The answers to my 'Whys'
Questions keep bombarding me
Will I find what I'm looking for?
Possibly not, but really, I know
The solution to all my woes, is me

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 178 #Cinquain #PhotoPrompt – Eye

Colleen’s Syllabic Poetry Challenge today:

We are using a photo prompt by Vashti Q. Vega.

Seeing, knowing
Scaled predator hunts
Patient, quiet, deadly, hungry

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 177 #SynonymsOnly – Transition & Harmony

Colleen’s Weekly Syllabic Poetry Challenge with two prompt words this week – but remember, you can’t use the words, just synonyms!

Transition & Harmony

Too many changes
An interruption of peace
As the world digests
Senseless advice has been given
Are we just lambs to slaughter?

I think that this #CoronaVirus is really getting to me!

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 165 #PhotoPrompt – Moon

Well, guess who had the honour of choosing this month’s prompt photo?

Me, that’s who! And I took it myself, as well!

Remember, it’s syllabic poetry that Colleen wants from us!

So, here’s the photo.

Two senryu for you you, 5/7/5, 3/5/3 and 2/3/2

I smile at the moon
Peering through the eerie clouds
Light, in my darkness

Moon appears
Through the eerie clouds
My night light

Ritu 2020

through the clouds
my light
