Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #106 – Ghost & Hollow #MicroPoetry #Etheree

Colleen’s tanka challenge, as always includes the premise that only synonyms for the prompt words must be used…

This week, the words were;

Ghost & Hollow

Etheree #3 for me, dedicated to #MeToo

Portrait, Grim, Girl, Blue, Dark, Album

Scared
Empty
Needing help
Haunting spirits
Age old memories
Looking over shoulders
Strangers always enemies
Unable to ever let go
No touch can heal the scars left behind
All relationships tainted, forever

Ritu 2018

I thank God I have not been in the situation that many women are opening up about, but here is my tribute to those ladies that have been affected by abuse of some kind or another, and then felt they could never open up about it.

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #105 – Colour & Creepy #MicroPoetry #Etheree

Colleen’s tanka challenge, as always includes the premise that only synonyms for the prompt words must be used…

This week, the words were;

Colour & Creepy

(Yup I used the English spelling for colour!)

Etheree #2 for me, and yes, I went a little macabre, thinking of death…

Ghosts Gespenter Spooky Horror Souls Creep

Gone
No more
Complexion
Takes on a hue
Saved for the lifeless
An eerie calm settles
No pain for you anymore
Yet for those of us left behind
The ones who’ll never see you again
The suffering has only just begun

#WritePhoto – Faraway

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

An etheree for you!

Far
Away
Yet close by
Across the deep
I call out to you
My voice travels, airborne
Crossing miles I cannot see
You hear me, knowing I am there
A reassurance for both of us
Our bodies apart but our hearts entwined

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #104 – Free Choice – Happy October #MicroPoetry #Etheree

Colleen’s tanka challenge, as always includes the premise that only synonyms for the prompt words must be used…

This week, the words were;

Free Choice!

It’s the first of the month so Colleen has given us free rein!

As it is October, I went all ghoulish! And attempted my first Etheree!

Ghosts Gespenter Spooky Horror Souls Creep

Ghosts
Eerie
Roaming free
Spooky beings
Frightening others
Unintentionally
Finding their place in this world
Only looking for acceptance
Wanting to live alongside us all
Near those loved ones they have left behind them
