Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 144 #SynonymsOnly

Here are the two words for this week:

“Enchant & Fly”

HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! 

I

Pilot

My own dreams

Nightmares come too

They won’t be held back

My mind captivated

By the charms in this strange world

The people I greet I may meet

I feel my heart flutter try to wake

Back here in my own world they are waiting

I circle, I climb, drifting over strange worlds

Shadowed nightmares follow close behind

My heart now beats a kettle drum

I run, try to reach safety

What part of this nightmare?

Do I bring back home?

This spinning thread

Of silver

Broken

dreams

Black

Lightning

Hides behind

Murky misty

Dark storm clouds growing

Hiding like an evil twin

A powerful force throwing

Anti-matter out into space

A black shroud put the world in mourning

Clouds bubbled boiled caught in a cauldron

Bright luminous skies return new-born days

Kissed by mornings long shining fingers

Hope carried in by sweet birds’ song

ideas grow from summer sun

written under blue skies

red sails on clear seas

gold days that last

friends that stay

through days

past

Looks out

At the world

With lights shining

As if it belongs

Chairs hidden forgotten

Bicycles never ridden

Parcel placed outside just for show

Looking for all the world to belong

Hologram, a picture from the future…

Cornish Etheree…

dozmary-pool.jpg

Dozmary Pool, Cornwall

Cornish Etheree

On a long trek across wind swept Cornwall

Searching out ancient legends still told

Close to Dozemary Pool the air changed

Shifting with long held purpose

Wind stills the water’s edge

I fear a sharp pull

of legend lost

where Arthur’s

sword still

waits

AAAAA

Colleen is not back in action just yet, so here is another double Etheree Poem from us…

cropped-the-faery-whisperer-5

One

Good seed

To bloom, grow

Evil destroys

What loving hands made

Disease spreads far and wide

Great towers fall and crumble

No voices heard church bells silent

On a wing and prayer, they return

Rebuild their towers bells to ring again

Man destroys what he can’t tame, blind desire

Leads us to home grown madness, cold hearts

Behind the mirrored face we see

We try not to let them in

Lest fear black hearts destroy

Warm seas to wash clean

What man has made

With sweet care

One good

seed

AAAAA

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge

Colleen is not yet back in circulation, but we post this double etheree in her honour!

cropped-the-faery-whisperer-5

 

old

magic

spells I found

hocus pocus

written in red ink

by foolish minds in need

from dark fancy born at night

dreams gone wrong by wish for power

time guards all sorcery that it owns

your mind alone  will never write the spell

your own illusion brings you back to hell

your spell was written with crooked pen

the devil waits to call you in

the wish made while heart was black

returns, a tenfold smack

forgive your mistake

make one right wish

for your life

to turn

back.

AAAAA

When

Night’s dark

Shadows fall

Lonely hearts call

The land is cold now

Secrets hide in darkness

Shadows crawl with dragon’s tail

They seek to find a place to be

To spread their golden wings in harmony

No harm to those in dragons dreaming sleep…

AAAAA

Colleen is still not back in action, but we will keep her challenges running until she surfaces again!
