This week’s #Poetry challenge at Colleen Chesebro’s blog – Synonyms only for the words ‘Plan‘ and ‘Spend‘. I’ve written a Haibun and Tanka.
WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!
Hi! I’m glad to see you here. Are you ready to write some syllabic poetry?
Here are your two words for this week:
Plan & Spend
HERE’S THE CATCH: You can’t use the prompt words! SYNONYMS ONLY! Except for the first challenge of the month ~ then, the poets get to choose their own words. ❤
For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, you can write your poem in one of the forms defined below. Click on the links to learn about each form:
My heart aches for the pain and suffering, and loss of life. What remains etched in my mind are the senseless deaths of many fleeing the only homes they’ve ever known, in hopes of asylum – only to find there isn’t any.
Beware the border
A failing system of hope
Yearning for freedom
Human life squandered in search
Where hopes and dreams go to die.
