Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Poetry Challenge No 77 : Charm and Time

This tanka is inspired by the two main characters in my novel – The Curse of  Time Book 1 Bloodstone, Amelina the main protagonist and the mysterious, unfathomable Ryder….

For time I used tempo and for charm bewitched.

We are having a baby girl!

A heartbeat’s tempo,

Bewitched am I, misled too,

Shadows invade me,

I struggle to break your spell,

I daren’t guess who you are.

Hope you enjoyed my tanka. Happy Easter Sunday folks.

Exciting News: Tomorrow is a very special day. It is the intended release date for my paperback so I’d love it if you pop over to my blog to celebrate with me.

Bye for now,

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. A clever socks is what you are. The Haiku and Tanka’s are forms that I will never master but can appreciate and admire those that i read. Well done.

    1. Thank you Ellen. I absolutely love writing poetry. I’d love to learn more about the different forms. It’s definitely in my bucket list to do. Thanks so much for your lovely encouraging comment. 🙂
