Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 50#Tanka: VOICE & WATCH * VIDEO ADDED!

Colleen’s weekly prompt words:

Voice & Watch

A tanka today

Passing precious time
Watching old home cine films
Tears and laughter flow
Voices echo from the past
Stirring memories so sweet

Sue’s #Writephoto prompt this week:

A silver lining
You can find around each cloud
Rays of hope shining
Be sure whatever may come
Positive always follows

Medusa – A Tanka

Beware, one glance at
Medusa’s serpentine locks
Hypnotising hair
Just a moment’s glimpse – Fatal
Turned into stone forever

TJ’s Household Haiku – Rain & Shiver

TJ’s back with his haiku prompts:

Nature reserve Perth

Rain & Shiver

I went with a 3/5/3 Haiku first…

Leaves shiver
With the weight of rain
Drops falling

Ritu 2017

Then a tanka

The rain falls in sheets
I’m wet and shivering
uncontrollably
Natures playing games again
Typical British summer

Ritu 2017

And the traditional 5/7/5 English haiku

A raindrop trickles
Sending shivers down my spine
Like your feathered touch

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 47 – #Haiku #Tanka: Shadow & Light

Colleen’s poetry challenge this week is using the words

Shadow & Light

080717_1817_ColleensWee9.png

Today I  am incorporating a Tanka and a Haiku into a single poemy thing!

Never seeing light
Forever in the shadows
Feasting or darkness
Negativity can hurt
If you starve it of all light

***

Keep your shadows small
Surrounding yourself with light
Make life positive
