Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge has a new feature. For the middle of the month challenge it’s a photo prompt!
For sentimental reason, I still keep many pieces of projects my daughter made. I have a flower pot she decorated when she was in 5th grade. It is sitting on a round glass top table between two chairs in the front patio. I like to sit in the front porch to drink coffee in the morning. The flower pot reminds me of the things we did together when she was growing up.
Kids are grown and gone
Keeping the bikes where they were
Jolly wheels still turned
Muddy feet through door they came
Hungry mouths screamed for cookies
Colleen said, “Let’s PLAY with opposites! Here are your two words for this week: Pretty & Ugly.” – Synonyms Only.
Here’s the poem about contrast and personal preference.
Pleasing view to me
Unsightly scene to others
Taste buds are distinct
No worries of sweet or sour
In time, you’ll find lovers
Happy July! It’s the first challenge of the month and poet’s choice of words!
Soothing rhythm of the rain drops
Faded in the midair
Blazing on my head and face
Is the scorching summer heat
For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, here are your two words for this week: Plan & Spend
HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY!
Travel from afar
Crossroad fast approaching
No choice not to choose
Courage needed to decide
To risk promise of unknown
