Treat every day as a gift
Unwrap new joy each morning

COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY On A Thursday #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 142 #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 two words, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

Character & Wild

Doll, Clown, Sad, Black And White, Sweet

"What a clown," they say
"Always pulling madcap stunts
Jeez, he makes me laugh."
Though he implores, "Look closer.
Can't you see my hurt inside?"

It isn't simple
Judging someone's character
On a first meeting
Never judge a book, they say
By cover, more lies within

An alteration
In attitude will bring
About compassion
We all need to change the way
That we act and see the world

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 136 #PhotoPrompt

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. Actually, scrap that…

Colleen has decided that this mid month, we are getting a photo prompt!

USE THE ABOVE PHOTO AS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR POEM. ASK YOURSELF QUESTIONS AND TELL A STORY. BE CREATIVE! WHAT DOES THIS PHOTO SAY TO YOU?

This is home sweet home
Where the light on the doorstep
Shines a bright welcome
A place filled with memories
A house full of family
