void, in life,

in mind, then unprovoked

memories once imagined lost,

reborn

the roaring, giant lantern

lifts into the air.

To escape the icy, dark, raging seas

a lone ship with all her sails lost, flees,

the crew of Her Majesty’s frigate, “Raven,”

in search of a headland, to act as haven.

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge . #Tanka ~Dreamland

One thousand fireflies

cast shadows in the meadow,

all to no avail,

darkness calls for silence though

crickets chirrup on the breeze.

While winds play cello

to the rhythm of the rain

clouds with lightning dance

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #46 #Limerick ~A walk in the woods

downhill-2A spirited girl called Louise

with a friend went home through the trees

but on some stone steps she tripped,

she fell ass over tip,

a good excuse for her grazed knees.

In sleek

imagined lines,

see these future vessels,

fine crafted, seasoned, wooden walls

become.

Stealthily he waits

while in her silken bower,

graceful limbs bewitch,

a spur to fateful passion

for when spent, he cannot flee.

Pure thoughts emanate

from his serene countenance,

smile of the Buddha.
