embraces blue sky
as night awakens
dim dusk light
crescent moon rises
pale color returns
This gogyohka is my response to Colleen’s #TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 247, #SynonymsOnly at Word Craft: Prose and Poetry,
using dusk and color for the offered words, twilight and hue.
I suppose you could say it’s a “short-line”tanka, as the syllables are consistent.

a fevered mind
in need of distraction
false peace of mind
shelter beneath oak
threatening clouds overhead
This haiku is my response to Colleen’s #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 238,
#SynonymsOnly, where the prompt words are sanctuary (shelter) and follow (ensue).

from cupped hands
This senryū is my response to
Misky’s Twiglet #229 – cupped hands.
My granddaughter was three days old the first time I held her.
The next time I hold her will be in July, when she will be eight months old.
