#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 210 #SYNONYMSONLY

My synonyms for Past and Present are Today and Elapsed. I have attempted a Gogyohka Nostalgic of what has elapsed Fearful of the enigmatic tomorrow Forgetful of today's little joys Leaving a fatigued soul And mind that is tattered.

#JusJoJan prompt the 8th – “Twisted”

What happens next, You wonder! What the stars foretell, You wonder! How the chimes of time turn, You wonder! You plan and envisage a future, It falls down like a pack of cards. You pick up the cards and stack them up, Yet it is blown away by the tempest. You stand alone in the… Continue reading #JusJoJan prompt the 8th – “Twisted”

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 175, #ThemePrompt

I have written a Gogyohka on the theme " The Day After." The day after is an unknown enigma Future blown away in life's tempest Swirled and swept in the whirlwind You have no hold What is ordained shall prevail.

The circle of life- (a Haibun)

The rolling verdant expanses offer an infinite panorama of life. The valley is lush with dancing blossoms. They are imbued with warm colours of Mother Nature. Tall pines soar high majestically paying an obeisance to the blue skies. The denizens of the blue canopy above traverse down to lend their colours to the world below.… Continue reading The circle of life- (a Haibun)

An ode to Spring -2( an etheree)

Soulful melody through whispering trees, Luscious notes reverberating through, Infusing into my deep core, Redolent with love unbound, Seeping into cold veins, An ambrosial rythm, Full of sweet love Icicles, Melted, A Bliss, Deep.

If tomorrow Comes

If tomorrow comes, It will be, A harbinger of things new, Ushering in an ardent hope, Unearthing a cache of hidden dreams. If tomorrow comes, It will write new stories, Etching the leaves of time, Erasing the tales of yore, That mean no more. If tomorrow comes, It will heal old wounds, Festering animosity, Now… Continue reading If tomorrow Comes

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 124 #SynonymsOnly

My synonyms for Game and Trouble are Play and Tumult. I have attempted a nonet Tides The die cast on the chequered board, Rolled by Tides in the play of life, To give what is preordained, Braving the Fates tumult, You ride the tempest, To drown again, Defiant, Buoyed, Now!

As Life turns

When life turns, It shows you the way, Paths untread, Now familiar, What was, Now no more. Milestones by the side, Whizzing by. And you move on, Lands blurring by, People in transit, And you, You just move on. A utopian quest, Seeking a cache bountiful, Finding a cloistered niche, Just to rest in solace!… Continue reading As Life turns
