Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 136 #PhotoPrompt

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. Actually, scrap that…

Colleen has decided that this mid month, we are getting a photo prompt!

USE THE ABOVE PHOTO AS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR POEM. ASK YOURSELF QUESTIONS AND TELL A STORY. BE CREATIVE! WHAT DOES THIS PHOTO SAY TO YOU?

This is home sweet home
Where the light on the doorstep
Shines a bright welcome
A place filled with memories
A house full of family

A beautiful face
Can mask a grotesque nature
Be wary of looks
You think you're seeing one thing
Truth is something different

Except it’s the first Tuesday of the month which means

Poet’s Choice of Words – Shattered & Rejuvenating

This one is dedicated to me this week… so tired after looking after an ill child, multiple training courses, noisy animals, and a lot of broken sleep…

Tired
Can't wait
To lie down
And close my eyes
Head hitting pillow
Drifting into slumber
Hoping for a solid sleep
With no nasty interruptions
No cat mewling at me for his food
No children with raging temperatures
No husband needing my attention
Just me, snuggled up in my bed
Oblivious to the world
Refreshing my body
My mind and my soul
Ready to face
Anything
The world
Throws.

Colleen’s back finally with her first Synonym challenge in nearly 2 months! 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!

Beginning & Consume

At
The start
Of the year
All I wanted
Was peace and quiet
They listened and left me
At first, I revelled in it
Then the loneliness slowly came
The silence ate away at my mind
I begged them to come back, but no one came
