barren landscape in looks for the first buds of spring snowdrop form flowers A door long locked from cold thaws to life as you approach
These interconnected poems were written for Colleen’s poetry challenge. This week was a color, and that color was green. We were instructed to attempt to avoid/imply the word green. We could chose our own form ,so I chose a 3-5-3 haiku and a tanka. Hope you enjoy (it is still snow covered in New Hampshire, but this wasn’t really about the weather. Or was it?)
wild cacophony a living emerald tower combing the blue sky
leaf fresh breeze order in chaos the world’s lungs
These were written for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge. Today we were to use the words Green and Morass, but could only use synonyms. I wrote two haikus, one the “old fashioned” 5-7-5 form, the other in 3-5-3 form.
This was written for Collen’s weekly poetry challenge. This week we were given two words to use, dawn and twilight, but only synonyms are allowed. I wrote a haiku.
Just a quick comment – I obviously thought of Cat Steven’s version of Morning Has Broken after I wrote this. Of course I always liked Rick Wakeman’s uncredited piano playing (He is my favorite rock keyboardist).
Fish in the river Swimming along with the flow Doesn’t see the bird
Written for Colleen’s Poetry challenge. Each week she gives us two keywords, only we must use synonyms only, not the words themselves. This week we were free to choose keywords and the key words I chose were “Water” and “Current” This week I decided to do a haiku, and though that rhymes, the haiku doesn’t ;).
(Last week’s poem was called “Life ;)”, but this is the other side of Life…)
