Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 131 #SynonymsOnly


It’s nice to welcome Colleen back after her break finding and settling in to her new home in Arizona. I’ve missed writing poetry but I’ve been super busy getting feedback back from my early readers and beta readers on my WIP: The Curse of Time Book 2 Golden Healer.

The synonyms I’ve chosen for beginning are dawn, and for consume – exhausted.

The tulips are from my recent trip to Montreal, Canada – Botanic Gardens. I had a wonderful time there on holiday with my two daughters.



Fields of Bright Tulips

With every dawn

Inspiration finds a way

To bloom in choice words

Until exhausted I dream

Fields of bright tulips



Hope you enjoyed my tanka poem.

Bye for now, happy creating!


A magical blog of books, writing and inspiration

  1. Marje, a delightful tanka and after these beautiful flowers I think I too would dream of ‘Fields of bright tulips’. Ahh… you and your daughters looks beautiful and full of joy during your trip. Great photos! 😀

  2. Wow! This is splendid, Marje. I love the photos too. Did you know Debby Gies lives in Tronto? I have no idea how far apart the two cities are but it would have been great for you two to meet. <3

    1. Hi Colleen
      Yes I did think about getting in touch but we had so few days and in the end we didn’t get round to going to Toronto which was such a shame. One day! Loved our trip and hope to revisit Canada and perhaps Toronto one day. <3
