Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday #Haiku #Senryu #MicroPoetry – STARK & TRAP

There I was, thinking Colleen’s Synonym challenge would be done after her November Nano absence… but guess what… She’s only gone and decided that she’s keeping it up! So we will have two words now, that we can’t use, as we need to find synonyms instead! Thanks, Colleen!!

This week she’s given us :

Stark & Trap

So here’s a haiku

 

Rose, Bud, Rose In The Snow, Ice

Outsmarting nature
Beauty still blooms in the cold
Barren winter scapes

Ritu 2017

And a Senryu

 

Man, Woman, Dispute, Thoughtful

Lose your vacant look
In order to snare a man
Be your fiery self

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday – Plenty & Meander

It’s the last Tuesday of the month of November, so the last of Colleen’s Synonym challenges!

This week she left us with:

Plenty & Meander

I found this pretty tough, to be honest! Really wanted to use the actual words!!!

But here’s a haiku ( used artistic license to add a syllable to the last line (naughty me!)

Forest, Autumn, Orange, Colorful, Nature

Gallivanting in
Forests strewn with fallen leaves
Cornucopia of joy

Ritu 2017

And a Senryu

Heart, Broken, Nature Love, Shape, Leaf

Image from Pixabay

A plethora of
Choice will sometimes encourage
Those pure hearts to stray

Only the strong-willed succeed
My heart in my mouth!
