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.



To enter the challenge follow the link:

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,

  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. 🙂
