Taste the Rainbow

Stay
here in
my glass globe
shake the changes
rainbow lights flashing
we dance under moonlight
taste the color of magic
we will stay in here hand in hand
safe inside, old age will pass us by
as we slide around the circle of light

Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge…

#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 266, 3/22/22, #THEMEPROMPT

This month’s theme is:

FIRE & WATER

The
clock struck
midnight twice
storm winds blew hard
the old house rattled
thunder had us hiding
lightning lit the tree flame red
hours later, rain took the flames back
slowly creeping from under the table
silence returned, filling the house with peace…

Are you ready for a #TankaTuesday theme prompt? Ken Gierke (Rivrvlogr) from last month’s challenge picked the theme:

TRANSITIONS

Take
a drab
rainy day
paint a rainbow
in all that you do
see the smiles in their eyes
hear the leaves whisper thank you
as you pass by each mighty tree
see the fairies wave as you pass them there…

Time
held in
twisting fate
life in waiting
spellbound, ticking slow
my screaming soul searching
for time to turn itself back
let the door open, take the leap
find that fast ticking clock, steal the key
I control time, now I stand on mountains…

Bells
ringing
Christmas cheer
children singing
Santa’s reindeer wait
gifts wrapped; ribbons tight
around the world in one night
there is no naughty list this year
each child will receive his heartfelt wish
Santa’s milk and cookies wait by the fire…

Anita loves doing these challenges and today she has written an etheree poem…

#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge: #Poet’s choice

One
by one
they leave me
the hall of souls
has become too quiet
so many want new lives
the Hall cannot be empty
some lives on earth will be cut short
time taken from them will be returned
all life and death must be kept in balance…

The
crying
ghosts recall
their names written
on sheets of paper
in the grim reapers book
he sits, checks over each name
the old grey walls longing for help
there was a time when they called them home
there’s one last name before the walls crumble
