#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. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’œ

#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

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