#TankaTuesday (On Friday) Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 26, 5/31/22, #LifeOfATeacher

It’s been a while, but I thought I would take part in the syllabic poetry challenge, Colleen hosts every week!

It’s the fifth Tuesday of the month! #ShareYourDay is a way to get to know each other better. Take a photo and write a syllabic poem about your day. Don’t think on it too hard. Make it fun. The photo does not need to be a selfie. If you don’t have access to a camera, find an image on Pixabay.com (please add the credits) that best describes your day.

Colleen Chesebro

My photo(s) describe every day this week, during my holiday, as I write my End of Year Reports! A Senryu works perfectly!

Writing class reports
Reminds me how much progress
These children have made
They've tested all my patience
But earned a place in my heart

#Tanka Tuesday (On a Thursday) #Poetry CHhallenge NO. 220, #Poetschoice #Etheree – In Memorandum

Colleen’s Syllabic poetry challenge this week is Poet’s Choice:

Souls
Traverse
From body
To higher plains
Today you leave us
I can feel you, above
As you begin your journey
Fly high, my darling Mamaji
As you leave, you take a piece of me
You may be gone, but never forgotten

This morning, at 5am, UK time, I will be attending the funeral of my beloved uncle, my Mamaji. This is dedicated to him. 🙏🏽💜

#TANKA TUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 219, #SPECIFICFORM

Colleen’s Syllabic Poetry Challenge:

For this poetry challenge, you can write a haiku and/or senryu on any subject you choose.

I’ve gone for the simple 2/3/2 form of Senryu. Hope you enjoy!

Waking
Next to you
Is bliss

Torture
From the night
Finished

You see
You snore - Loud
No sleep

Colleen’s back with her weekly Syllabic Poetry prompt! It’s Ekphrastic prompt week, which means a poem inspired by a photo!

Masking my sadness
Strumming the strings of distress
Trying to soothe thoughts

#Tanka Tuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 217, #ThemePrompt – Immortality

Colleen’s Syllabic Poetry Prompt. It’s a theme prompt this week:

“Immortality”

Forever with us
Always in our hearts and thoughts
Never forgotten
Death may take people from us
Memories are immortal
