WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 203. #EKPHRASTIC #PHOTOPROMPT

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.

Franci Hoffman, aka Eugi’s Causerie II has chosen this month’s theme as: The Night Sky I have attempted a Reverse Etheree.

COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 191 #PHOTOPROMPT

I have written an etheree Traversing alone through woods dark and deep, Staring at infinite lines of fate, Running far but never to meet, Things of the past now had been, What shall unfold will be, I simply trudge on, New trails unknown, A sojourn, Endless, So!

I have attempted an Etheree. A Circle The circle of life begins where it ends, Traversing those meandering trails, You return to where you began, Deceptive de-tours and paths, Laughed aloud in your face, For nothing much changed, You moved on, Along, Cirque.

I have written an Etheree on Dreams. Spin, New Dreams, Twine phantasms, Tendrils of hope, Iridescent hued, An ivory tower, An arcadian world glows, No longer an idyllic lair, But my eyes yearn to drink it all in, A variegated kaleidoscope.

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. Leaving a fiery trail on dreary grey, The errant ray full of lively spright, A cavalcade of surging hope, Flaunting… Continue reading Hope(A double etheree)

I have written an Etheree on this beautiful prompt by Jude, from Tales Told Different. She sang to the tune of falling raindrops, Trying to fight darkness with her light, Her silent thunder rained down love, Her dazzling eyes dispersed gloom, Unrestrained and fiery, Rejunevating, Infusing life , Into all, Blooming, Life.

This week's theme prompt by Sally Cronin is Night Sky. I have written an etheree. Sky anointed with a mystical hue, Haunted by its melancholic depths, A night dark and deep in the void, But embellished and adorned, The silvery beacon, Its luminous glow, Showing you way, In Darkness, All way, Home.
