COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGES NO. 114 Try & Life #Haiku #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!

Try & Life

A tanka for this week…

Endeavour to become
A true individual
Not a follower
Seek to become a person
Who leads by great example

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #227 Truth & Honour

Lovely Ron with his Haiku Challenge prompt words this week:

Truth & Honour

More of a tanka this week, rather than a haiku.

Honouring the lost
The truth of their whereabouts
Not exactly known
Mourning forgotten soldiers
Fallen heroes, no return

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

Ritu 2018

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.

Welcome to Tanka Tuesday

Have a great day!

#WritePhoto – Bone

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

A rugged landscape
Embellished with skeletons
Bones telling stories
What happened, no one will know
Unless these bones breathe again

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #105 – Colour & Creepy #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;

Colour & Creepy

(Yup I used the English spelling for colour!)

Etheree #2 for me, and yes, I went a little macabre, thinking of death…

Ghosts Gespenter Spooky Horror Souls Creep

Gone
No more
Complexion
Takes on a hue
Saved for the lifeless
An eerie calm settles
No pain for you anymore
Yet for those of us left behind
The ones who’ll never see you again
The suffering has only just begun
