Image by mollyroselee from Pixabay I have written a double inverted etheree Empty vast lands spanned the panorama, Cloistered in a pristine verdant lush, Meadows under azure expanse, Washed in breathless golden hues, An idyllic melange, Heaven and earth one, Nature's bounty, Untainted, Lonely, Now. A, Stony, Edifice, Weathered with time, Stood as a vanguard,… Continue reading NaPoWriMo 2021 #TANKA TUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 222 #EKPHRASTIC #PHOTOPROMPT

Image Credit: D.L. Finn I have attempted a double etheree. A, Lonely, Soul walks sad, On untread paths, Iridescent swirl, Shading misty carnage, That would cause it so much pain, It followed the heart's tested trail, That led it to its shady cloister, A secluded dear niche only its own. What now remained of the… Continue reading #TANKA TUESDAY WEEKLY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 218 #EKPHRASTIC #PHOTOPROMPT

This month’s theme is: Dreams I have attempted a Reverse Etheree. A dark canopy of glittering stars, A silvery beam of moonlight trail, Falling on mind’s dusky expanse, It forms a luminous bridge.

Hope ( a double etheree) Light, Vibrant, Spreading love, Now cloistered deep And Melancholic, It Fluttered in fury, Darting at the grey cover, Slipping through tiny crevices, The icicles now with a dull sheen A Suffusion of warmth so radiant.

Image by Barbara A Lane from Pixabay Imprints ( an etheree) Days, Of yore, Imprinted, Ridged bright flashes, Cerulean taint, Now duskily dreary, Intimate joys flown away, Life's warm hues drained dull and whitewashed, Impassive stupor held me captive, But I shrugged it off to bravely walk on.
