Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 180, #Poet’sChoice #BlackoutTuesday

Colleen’s Syllabic poetry challenge is #Poetschoice this week.

I stand here
Right by your side
Not just supporting
But, as your equal
As you are mine
You matter

I’m not sure what to call this, again, 1,2,3,4,5,5,4,3,2,1 format, but my verse shows my support to the #BlackLivesMatter campaign.

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 178 #Cinquain #PhotoPrompt – Eye

Colleen’s Syllabic Poetry Challenge today:

We are using a photo prompt by Vashti Q. Vega.

Seeing, knowing
Scaled predator hunts
Patient, quiet, deadly, hungry

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 174 #PhotoPrompt – Wistful

Colleen’s Weekly Syllabic challenge!

This week is a photo prompt that has been selected by Jude, from Tales Told Different.

Eyes gaze, wistfully
Recalling moments of joy
That time is gone, now...

Wistful gaze
Happy memories
All gone now

In this photo I saw a lover looking wistful, then, upon looking further, I could see a mound of earth… what is it? Is it a burial place, a shallow grave?

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 163, #Poet’sChoice Success #Gogyohka

Colleen’s Weekly Syllabic poetry Challenge!

It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Poets, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you!

I am going to attempt a Gogyohka today. This is a five line poem, with no syllabic count, so to speak, but each of the lines must be a phrase able to be said in a breath. The theme is unrestricted.
The nerves are flowing
Butterflies fluttering
Dreams fulfilled within a few days
Will it be a success?
Only time will tell
