#TANKA TUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 214, #THEMEPROMPT

This month’s theme is: Dreams 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 now, Dead. Via: Tanka Tuesday

Voices

Voices, Inside, Echoing, Riding the crests, Hiding in the troughs, A cacophony of decibels, Sweet and soft notes, And also sharp ones, Painful and consoling, They just ring on. Reminding me of painful memories, Shaded and pale with time, Or just harkening back to days of joy, Singing the mirthful tunes. A syllabic rhapsody, That… Continue reading Voices

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 209, #POET’SCHOICE

A Recall( a Shadorma) A recall, A reverie true, Fire now doused, A lone spark, It revived the jaded soul, Cloistered wishes freed. Via: https://lindaghill.com/2021/01/20/one-liner-wednesday-jusjojan-the-20th-2021-defeat/

#JusJoJan prompt the 18th – “Wish”

Wishes, Gossamer winged, Irridiscent in the warm sunlight, Floating aerily in the cerulean skies, Beckoning me to dreamy lands, Faraway and faraway, An idyllic repose, And my heart soared! But stormy gales, Blew far and wide, Scattering the frail wishes all around, Lost in the maelstrom, Not to be found! And some lucky ones, They… Continue reading #JusJoJan prompt the 18th – “Wish”

#JusJoJan 9 & #SoCS – Limitless

Sky is the limit! Is our energy and courage to reach there limitless? We fall to rise and fall again. Bruised,battered and scarred,we still look up at the cerulean skies in deep longing. Life goes by and years roll by in swift tandem with time. But the skies still beckon us. The cherished dreams stay… Continue reading #JusJoJan 9 & #SoCS – Limitless

#JusJoJan prompt the 1st – “Fingertips”

When everything you have ever dreamed of, Is no longer at your fingertips, And seems miles away, Do not let the niggling seeds of self doubt sprout, Let not the distance daunt you, It gives you time to grow, What is the point of lofty dreams, If you could reach them easily!

Thursday photo prompt: Dream #writephoto

I dream to see a dream, It is the place unseen, It is the time that has never been, It is an endless quest, Leading to faraway horizons. A splash of dancing hues, A fragrant ecstasy, A verdant lush, Inviting, Inciting my animated soul. I walk fearless and brave, For nothing can shackle my pace.… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Dream #writephoto
