Indiscriminately ~ #Tanka #Poem

Sultry wind danced
To melodic fluttering
With all of the leaves

Every shape, size and color
Tangoed together at once

Gone Fishing 🎣 # Haiku #Tanka

A gentle lapping
Breaks daily monotony
Against calm lakeshore

– Haiku

A gentle lapping
Breaks daily monotony
Against calm lakeshore

Vacation hooked and baited
Nature’s wild, a peaceful feast

– Tanka

 

In response to Ronovan Writes – Haiku challenge #171 using the words = Lake & Calm.

The Mountain – (a Duet) Finish it Friday

Written by; Robert Louis Covington (Italics) & Kelly Lewis

Calming beauty and mystery
Circling valleys with majesty

I call upon thee greenery
Shifting mantels of prosperity
To fill me with your serenity

– A “Finish it Friday” prompt from the Inlandia Institute featuring fellow IECWC member Robert Louis Covington’s piece ‘The Mountain’

Hate Crimes – #Tanka

Towering over,
ill placed egos swell with pride
while victims cower

suffering from their birth rights
subject to fearful hate crimes
