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.

Thursday photo prompt: Crown #writephoto

What you sow, You shall reap, They said. I worked hard, Day and night, All rolled into one. I harvested the fruits, Mellow and juicy, A luscious aroma, It spread in my life. But, I lost my way, Deceived in the maze, The bare stalks laughed at me, Swaying merrily, Spread in the vast expanse.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Crown #writephoto

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.

Thursday photo prompt: Lambent #writephoto

One day these dark clouds, These dark clouds that overcast my sky, My sky that is no longer blue. Blue overwhelms my soul, My soul yearns for the sunny warmth, Sunny warmth with its irridiscent hues, Hues that no longer colour my life. My life awaits the day, The day the sun will shine again.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Lambent #writephoto

Play Of Time

You spend years of life, Years of life that go by, Years that you dreamt of, Years that you cherished with dreams of life. Years roll by, All in a silent cacophony, The nimble tread of time, You failed to hear it's chimes, It eavesdropped, It knew your secret desires. But the stealthy elf, It… Continue reading Play Of Time

You sleigh the unforseen demons, Surfing on the fortuitous furore, You reach… Continue reading Unexpected Ways

A Bubble

She lived in a bubble, Caged in the glassy coccoon, She saw the outside world, In a pristine hue. The refracted truth, The sheathed life, The veiled truth, Life a lie! A frothy placebo, That showed what it wanted to tell, She floated in the pink panorama, Weaving an illusionary web. She was happy, She… Continue reading A Bubble

A Question

Doing the daily things, The hours go by. The days go by. The weeks go by. The months go by. The years go by. And then one day, I wake up from the stupefied slumber, Hair all tousselled, Eyes sleep puffed, And mind in inertia. I wake up, And ask myself aloud, A litany of… Continue reading A Question
