Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 170, #ThemePrompt

It’s the fourth week of the month – time for a #ThemePrompt! Last month, I selected Sally Cronin to pick this month’s theme:

The Night Sky

No

Sunshine

Darkness comes

Wonders to see

Look west, large bright star

Twinkle twinkle overhead

Cameras out, shoot the stars

Put them online for all to see

Shooting star, chance to make a true wish

Dark velvet skies shot through with diamond lights…

Wearing green means I can’t be seen today

Leprechauns hide their treasures so deep

One piece of gold will serve me well

To bring good luck all your life

I leave a note to say

IOU you one gold piece

Plus interest

My hunt done

I go

home.

Our entry for Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 168 #SynonymsOnly

Here are the two words selected by Ruth Scribbles, from last month’s #SyllablesOnly challenge:

COMFORT & WORN

 

My

Armchair

Soft comfort

Worn out, threadbare

Like me, it’s timeworn

Yet happiness lives there

relief for my aching back

My very tattered worn out friend

It started life in my mother’s house

Something no amount of money can buy…

If you love me, tell me so

Don’t let black moods overshadow the day

Send me flowers to make me smile

Hold my hand when we walk a mile

Before you close your eyes, kiss me goodnight…

This is our rendition of the Gogyohka style of Japanese Poetry, and hoping we understood the formula!

Quick

stubborn

Midnight sky

Dark thin branches

An old sentinel

Safeguarding the portal

Forgotten time, another world

Bright lights, hidden moon disguising

Daring to enter where angels won’t

Bring back new magic to a world waiting…

Stone walls

Soldiers stand

Cold winter bites

Deep beneath their feet

Ancient dreaming souls wait

Secrets held by time made old

druid mysteries to be told

Let the world stand ready when they’re found

For magic lives beneath this old worn ground.

“The Circle of Life” #Senryu

Time

Turning

Ever round

Orbit spinning

Old ghosts whispering

The clock ticks twelve, new year

Could be old for new turning

Aladdin’s lamp with genie too

Rubbed to make your old wishes come true

Turn once more to ticking clock, start again…

This month’s photo prompt has been provided by Willow Willers.

 

One

Small sign

India

Celebrating

Painted hands dancing

Temple sounds in the air

Sweet spice filled markets, crowded

Smiling faces wait with greeting

Namaste, sunshine will bless your day

Painted hands take me back to India…
