Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge…

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 212 #SYNONYMSONLY

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

This week, Word Crafters, Colleen has selected the words to get us going. These words are opposites with many synonym possibilities:

Loose & Tight

Free
Floating
Fast talking
Careless whispers
Stiff lipped misery
My life undone by spite.
Given back by helping hands.
I sit relaxed in sloppy joes.
My thoughts find a happy place to go.
No more narrow pathways do I need walk…

#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 210 #SYNONYMSONLY

This week, the words for the synonyms only challenge are

PAST & PRESENT


Slow
Summer
Days are gone.
Now we have snow.
Hungry birds to feed.
small footprints left behind.
Visiting cats passing through
I have turned into Sherlock Holmes
Leaving my prints behind as I go
As I search for the abominable snowman…

I
Slide
Slip away
On virgin snow
Floating in the air
United with childhood
Free to remember days gone
I am in an old-time free fall
Time returning long lost memories
All given while I blend with virgin snow…
