COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY on a Thursday #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 145 #PHOTOPROMPT

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Prompt:

It’s mid month, so we have a photo prompt this week.

A
World where
The ground just
Disappeared
Only safe creatures
Were the birds and the fish
Did you four legged creatures
Find help on Noah's wooden ark?
He promised to save two of each one
It rained for forty days and forty nights
Slowly clouds receded, the sun shone
Water began to go away
Lone dove bore an olive branch
The tops of trees were seen
The world was rid of
Evil people
At least for
A few
Years

COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY On A Thursday #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 144 #SYNONYMSONLY Enchant & Fly

It’s Tuesday Thursday, 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!

Enchant & Fly

Soaring through the sky
Mesmerising formations
They're off for winter

Colleen’s Tanka Challenge:

Wishing life away
Is simply not an option
Grab it by the horns
Treat every day as a gift
Unwrap new joy each morning

"What a clown," they say
"Always pulling madcap stunts
Jeez, he makes me laugh."
Though he implores, "Look closer.
Can't you see my hurt inside?"

A
Message
Delivered
In a bottle
By nature's postman
Who's it for? Who's it from?
A cry for help? Love letter?
How long has this note been floating
On the surface of the ocean deep?
Time to open and reveal the secret
