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

I have written an Etheree and my synonyms for Loose and Tight are Easy and Strong. Road Less Taken Road, Cobbled, Less taken, Pits unruly, Catch you unawares, Shaded by tall dark trees, Ominously glaring down, Even a strong soul shudders deep, Choosing to walk on path not easy, Far to the enigmatic lands unseen.… Continue reading #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 212 #SYNONYMSONLY

In the flames( an Abhanga) Deep Red Burning embers sizzle me to the core stoking dead sparks to fore as numb soul melts.
