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.

What Day is it Anyway? Saturday March 28th, 2020

Today was Day 4. Not much change in daily routine. Doing daily things took most of time leaving me bone tired. Rested and then flipped through some old magazines. The count seems to rise each day leaving one scary. The sparrows are twittering and cuckoo sang a few times. And the crows have gone more… Continue reading What Day is it Anyway?

Thursday photo prompt: Wistful #writephoto

A Haibun The vast empty moorland extended into miles of lush greenery, virgin pristine forests.

Lonely are lands now, Yet… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Wistful #writephoto

It was an emoji battle,silly and childish. But everyone wanted a diversion, a reprieve from all that was… Continue reading What Day is it Anyway? Friday, March 27th, 2020

What Day is it Anyway? Thursday, March 26th, 2020

The second day dawned bright. The sun was high up in the sky. It is getting warmer and you get up in beads of sweat under the duvet. I look morosely at the AC dying to put it on. But Corona scared me. I did some cooking and some household chores. It is now sinking… Continue reading What Day is it Anyway? Thursday, March 26th, 2020

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
