Sue’s #writephoto prompt:

An etheree, if I may…

There
Will be
Hills and troughs
That's life, you see
Always ups and downs
But we must remember
That so we appreciate
The highest of the highs in life
We need to experience the lows
Never look back, just keep looking onwards

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 113, HAPPY DECEMBER! POETS CHOICE OF WORDS #MicroPoetry #Etheree #DoubleEtheree

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! so we get to choose our own words this week!

Poet’s Choice

Today I am writing a tribute to Christmas at school… In Double Etheree form, from the kid’s and the teacher’s perspective!

Awe
Wonder
Child-like glee
Decorations
Christmas lights twinkling
Upon a wonky tree
Handmade cards for family
Glitter strewn all over the floor
Ongoing nativity practices
Welcome to the classroom festive season!

Papework piling up, deadlines looming
Trying to teach hyperactive kids
Hungry for Santa and presents
Being the voice of thirty
As kids forget songs
Smiling inanely
Grateful for gifts
Thankful for
Term end
Peace

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 111, “CELEBRATE & NUMBER,” #SYNONYMSONLY

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 twowords, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

And there are a few forms of poetry that we can use… Tanka, Senryu, Haibun, Haiku, Etheree… so, here goes!

The words we can’t use this week are:

Celebrate & Number

So… here goes! A Reverse Etheree this week.

A huge amount of family and friends
Gathering together to rejoice
To appreciate each other
And all that life has given
Turkeys slowly roasting
The sides to die for
A meal for all
Thanksgiving
Sharing
Love

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #108 – Afraid & Grave #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;

Afraid & Grave

Fear, Buried, Horror, Scared, Stress

Scared
Fear of
Burial
Trapped underground
Whilst I’m still breathing
Unable to get out
My cries falling on deaf ears
Will I ever see light again?
Pounding the walls of my confinement
Knowing I’ll never get a chance to live…

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

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.
