Joys( A Gogyohka) Little joys unnamed Sprout in life’s tiny niches Blossoms of a rapturous hued hope Spread a fragrant cheer As sorrow is now tamed. Via : https://wp.me/p4xNpg-blt
When life throws a tantrum, Raving and ranting, Bubbling a cauldron of angst, Spouting a vented fury, I panic and fret, As all goes for a toss! And I let out a big sigh, And simply let the tempests blow. Lightings shall crack the dark sky, As thunders rage across, Ripping across the dusky darkness,… Continue reading Life’s Rant
Franci Hoffman, aka Eugi’s Causerie II has chosen this month’s theme as: The Night Sky 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, A viaduct of hope, Transient and fiery, Infusing life, Into dreams, Till… Continue reading COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 196, #THEMEPROMPT
Crowds bustling, Sounds resonating And You stand alone! A deep silence, An infinite chiasm, A dark abyss! You look for a lone ray, A shaft of hope. You hear a kind word, A decibel reaching your core! And, You walk on, A lone traveller, On a road unknown!
Life with its eccentric elan, Sends you in a tizzy. You pause to catch your breath, But you get swept in its whirlwind. You want to stand and stare, But it refuses to let you procrastinate.

The serried twists and sharp turns, Ensheathed in a veiled canopy , That hides its dazzling sheen, From those that envy its resplendent allure, Unsurpassed, Untouched. It beckons you, Tantalising, Mocking that you can't you reach it, As you want it all the more. You just walk along in tremulous fear, Gingerly circumventing the folds,… Continue reading A serried tale

Often do I come face to face, With all my inner fears and flaws, That jest aloud in an applause, As big,dark shadows do I chase, Trying to keep up a boldface, Stuttering in foolish fumble, My heart goes in a wild tremble, The Tides strive to give me a tip, That stops me from… Continue reading Ronovan Writes (TIP) This week, it’s the D rhyme line.
In a night dark and deep lone stood a tree, Haunted by much melancholic depths, Its verdant branches standing proud, Paying obeisance to the silvery crescent. Welcoming the first light of dawn, Basking in its mystical hues, The dark silhouette on rolling meadows, Awaiting for the new sun to rise, That would rejuvenate its core.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Crescent #writephoto | Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo
Jules, of Jules Pens Some Gems selected words for this week. My synonyms for “Circled and Squared" are Encircle and Harmonized. I have written a Gogyohka, Wisps of dream floating in the cerulean sky Encircled by a fiery halo of hope Harmonized by a tranquil zeal She caught those silvery wisps one by one And… Continue reading COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 190 #SYNONYMSONLY
