Close where I live, we have abandoned tracks
A popular walk, where horses graze
Orange water flows past tall trees
Walk over wooden bridges
To the sound of water
Flows beneath your feet
The air sweet with
wild garlic
the mind
still…

COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 190 #SYNONYMSONLY

“Circled and Squared”

Time
moves in
slow circles
The brown snake coiled
Patiently waiting
For his dinner to move
The balance of life to match
The still sleeping prey unaware
that life’s harmony will be broken
The level of life’s tally soon returned…

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 186 #SynonymsOnly

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Anita Dawes picked the two words for you to choose your synonyms from. Opposites are so fun to work with. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Here are your two words:

“BLESSED & HEX”

Dark
Shadows
Upon me
By evil eye
Sacred ground I seek
Holy blessings I need
With consecrated water
Sorcery follows dark footsteps
Leading me by bewitching shadows
To bury this black curse on hallowed ground…

This was just what Anita needed right now, as she battles her way back to health, and I would like to thank Colleen personally for choosing Anita for this weeks words!

It’s
silver
magic that
sparkles, dancing
on the edge of life
By Avalon’s gold gate
Find the ferryman with coin
Your journey will not be in vain
Here is where joy and laughter were born
Even in dreaming you gain more than you think…

Look
into
my green eyes
I’m in disguise
My true form hidden
Guarded by evil witch
Aurelia’s cold dark hand
Holds my soul in black granite rock
Merlin’s my name, whispered on the wind
or love of Arthur, you can set me free…

You can tell that Colleen loves cats!

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.
