Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 177 #SynonymsOnly – Transition & Harmony

Colleen’s Weekly Syllabic Poetry Challenge with two prompt words this week – but remember, you can’t use the words, just synonyms!

Transition & Harmony

Too many changes
An interruption of peace
As the world digests
Senseless advice has been given
Are we just lambs to slaughter?

I think that this #CoronaVirus is really getting to me!

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 175, #ThemePrompt The Day After

Colleen’s Tanka Challenge, this week, is a theme based one and the theme has been set by Elizabeth, from Tea and Paper.

The Day After

Twas the day after
That wonderful night before
The night I met you
Just imagine, one meeting
It changed my life completely

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 160 #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! And only syllabic poetry!

“CALM & PRESENT”

In this moment, I 
Feel a sense of peace within
Relaxing my mind
A gift from the universe
All stars and planets aligned

Colleen’s Tanka Challenge:

Wishing life away
Is simply not an option
Grab it by the horns
Treat every day as a gift
Unwrap new joy each morning

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?"
