This challenge is for Haiku, Senryu, Haiga, Tanka, Haibun, Etheree, Nonet, Shadorma, and Cinquain poetry forms. Freestyle rhyming poetry is not part of this challenge. Thank you. ❤

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

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday On A Thursday #Poetry Challenge No. 139 #Poet’sChoice

It’s 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! Except it’s the first challenge of the month so Colleen allows poets to choose their own two words to use in a syllabic poem.

Future & Hope Own choice!

I chose to write an Etheree using Write & Story as they are apt for my personal challenge this month, to edit my story to as perfect as I can! #RiNoEdMo

Pen, Font, Macro, Calligraphy

Write
Edit
Create worlds
Use colourful
Imagination
To transport your reader
To a place they've never been
Just scribe a story so intense
The pages almost turn by themselves
Pulling readers deeper into your tale

Aflame #writephoto

Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt this week:

It
Is not
Only the
Sky that's aflame
Right now the whole place
Feels like it it burning
A heat that's unbearable
Making us feel like we're melting
We always ask rain to disappear
Right now I think we'd welcome a downpour!

Forgotten #writephoto

Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt:

A
Doorway
Forgotten
By all the world
An entrance, sealed shut
Waiting to be opened
To share the beauty within
A garden befitting the Gods
Filled with huge trees, shrubs and rainbow blooms
Allowed to grow, as Nature intended

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 131 #SynonymsOnly Beginning & Consume

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

Sad, Depressed, Depression, Sadness

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
