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

Eccentric

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 tornado blazes through, Blowing you in circles wide, Sweeping you of your feet, As you get tossed and… Continue reading Eccentric

A serried tale

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

Loving yourself

She loved herself, And the world did not love her for it. Her radiance shone bright, And the world eclipsed her light. She flew so high, And the world clipped her wings. She sang aloud soulful songs, And the world muted the melody. She dreamed to dream, And the world shattered her reverie. She smiled… Continue reading Loving yourself

Thursday photo prompt: Crescent #writephoto | Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo

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
