Here are your two words for this week:

Beginning & Consume

HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! Except for the first challenge of the month ~ then, the poets get to choose their own words. ❤

PLEASE support the other poets by visiting their blogs and leaving comments. Sharing each other’s work on social media is always nice too.

This challenge is for Haiku, Senryu, Haiga, Tanka, Haibun, Etheree, Nonet, Shadorma, and Cinquain poetry forms. Freestyle rhyming poetry is not part of this challenge. Thank you. ❤

So good to be taking part in Colleen’s challenges again!

 

My

Own dark

Beginning

Devouring life

I lay waste to all

Not a care in the world

Until a child touched my hand

Bringing cold stone heart back to life

no longer devour life, I stroll through

Happy to wait for a new blessed sunrise…

AAAAA
