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

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

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge 14/11 Smell & Cosy

Colleen’s Poetry challenge this month includes words which we can’t use, but instead, in their place, we need to use synonyms!

This week we have:

Smell & Cosy

Two for this week:

The first, neither a haiku nor a senryu, as it’s not about nature, nor love, but still, a 5/7/5 form!

Cookies, Baking, Fresh, Homemade

Scent of comfort
Cookies baking in the oven

And a cinquain:

People, Couple, Hug, Love, Man, Woman

Comfort
Scented moments
Snuggling, cuddling, hugging
Closeness found within embraces

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge #Tanka – Autumn & Leaves

Colleen’s alternative poetry challenge NaNoWriMo is running: giving us a pair of words and for us to then use not them, but synonyms in our poems!

This weeks words to switch are~:

Autumn & Leaves

Snow, Autumn, Leaves, Winter, Leaf

I used Indian summer, and fall for autumn and farewell and foliage for leaves, within a tanka.

Indian summer
I bid you a fond farewell
For winter is here
The gold foliage of fall
Gives way to cold, bare winter
