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.

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…

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…

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 160 #SynonymsOnly

Anita has composed an etheree poem this week for Colleen’s words CALM and PRESENT.

Slow

Running

Cool water

Smooth round boulders

Ancient hands have touched

They speak of memory

Old-time tingling my fingers

Something new begins, today’s thought

Standing on history, time waiting

To awaken again by someone’s touch…

It

matters

to me now

The lies you told.

The stories have grown

whispering in the street.

They have painted me scarlet

for one moment, a stolen kiss

old sweetheart, returning, passing through

 time remembered, repeated, stains my lips…
