Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 170, #ThemePrompt

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.

Cobbled Clutter

Full of adamant edifices, They never let us go! We fall, We rise, Only to fall again. Traversing rough terrains, Clanging on the cobbled clutter, Life goes on.

My life awaits the day, The day the sun will shine again.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Lambent #writephoto

And you still draw, Small lines, Broken lines, Anonymous, Indistinct. Someday, Those lines would merge, An amalgam of all the broken ones, And a masterpiece borne. For… Continue reading Life- story
