Pondering over

How some think themselves perfect

And look down others

It’s a mystery to resolve 

Or they need a good shaking

#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 107 – Participate & Grooming

participation
in any event needs 
well grooming
for which 
my elder sister was 
hell-bent 
to train me 
for a dance show
but on the final show
I fumbled all my steps
to her disappointment and
to the confirmation
that I have two left feet

Monument of love

God knows what secrets it hides

Behind its grandeur

Beauty it reflects outside

Pain perhaps lies in its womb

COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 91, “Magic & Green,” #SYNONYMSONLY

The dry spell no more
rain god waves  conjuring wand
sea water turns  grey
the trees become fresh and bathed
making earth lush emerald
—————————-
need incantations 
to put the unripened fruits
back where they belonged
unluckily plucked in haste 
before they were fully ripe

#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 103 – Summer & Breeze

girl-3402351_640

Free verse: Summer and Breeze

a long spell of summer
hot and haughty
humid and depressing
glaring Sun
sucking water from your body
leaving you 
dehydrated
water scarcity
hits you hard
perched throats
yearn for 
cold water
and some relief
all seasons
are importance 
but living 
happily
through
ten months summer
is not a breeze
heart yearns for
a cool, comforting, 
and 
pleasant breeze

#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 102 – Experience & Life

Tanka- Experience, and Life

 when I look back at
 life full  experiences
where to go and share
everyone has its own
and if you are not famous
no one will pay any heed

#Weekly Tanka Prompt #Poetry Challenge – Week 100 – Celebrations & Century

Thanks, Elsie for your wonderful challenges which gave me something to think and made me try other types of poetry. I will miss these challenges.

Mother’s century
Though we could not celebrate
As she passed away
Three years before completing
Seeing her pain and discomfort
I prayed for her departure
Whom we love can’t see in pain
( This is not a Tanka but had to add the last line)
