Colleen’s Poetry Challenge:

Sing & Spring

A beautiful dawn
I can hear the bird's chorus
The sun is shining
A perfect start to the day
Bringing a bounce to my step

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 127 #SynonymsOnly – Follow & Lead

It’s Tuesday, and that means Colleen’s Tanka Challenge! Of course, just providing a couple of words would be far too simple, so we have twowords, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

Follow & Lead

People, Pedestrians, Walking, Motion

Wherever you go
I will be your own shadow
I'll never leave you
Be my escort to the light
Show me how to live just right

It’s Tuesday, and that means Colleen’s Tanka Challenge! Of course, just providing a couple of words would be far too simple, so we have two words, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

Meaning & Passion

Love, Romantic, Relationship, Together

A little senryu which is apt for Valentine’s Day!

Much more than a hint
Showing my feelings for you
Will you marry me?

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 122

As I said yesterday, the challenges are back on after a month off!

Today it is Colleen’s turn, with her Tanka Tuesday which is not just about Tankas, but rather a chance to use different syllabic poetic forms.

Usually, she gives us two words which we need to use synonyms of within our verses… but on the first Tuesday of the month, we get free rein, and this month, the suggestion was to think of love related poems, as Valentine’s is so close…

Colleen recently introduced us to a new form, called a Haiga, where the words, usually a haiku or senryu, are echoed by an image, traditionally painted, but nowadays, can be a photo too.

I thought I’d try the traditional way, and even painted my own quick watercolour to go with it! It’s simplistic but effective, I hope!

A senryu for you all.

My words are Together and Heart

Two Hearts By Ritu
Two hearts beating fast
Ten fingers firmly entwined
One life together

Belief & Joy

Today I use a traditional Japanese Haiku form with a 3/5/3 syllable count!

Elation
Celebrating faith
Pure rapture
