COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 193, #POET’SCHOICE: #senryu #Photo #Meringue #Sweet #Tasty

This lovely dessert was one of the tastiest, most visually pleasing delights I have ever had the pleasure of eating!

But, it’s not for everyone… not if you are allergic to egg whites, or you don’t like meringue, or…

You love meringue but have put on a few pounds during lockdown… maybe I shouldn’t have another one…

Only joking, this was at a restaurant…

Sumptuous meringue

A tempting, strawberry high

My body shouts NO!

A strawberry crown

Crumbling meringue face

Dotted with delight!

Somehow I prefer the last one… oh dear I do have a problem. Even my poetry is saying eat the dessert… Such a sweet tooth!

Which poem do you prefer? Let me guess…

I love poetry!

I write poetry in all of my books (excluding some of the anthologies.) You’ll find poetry in Mr. Sagittarius, Poetry and Prose, in The Curse of Time Book 1 Bloodstone, (short form poetry at the beginning of each chapter,) and there is also poetry in the anthology/compilation This Is Lockdown.

Thank you for stopping by and remember to leave a comment! xxx

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 164 #SynonymsOnly

Love & Harmony were the prompt words this week.

For love I went for lust and passion! For harmony I chose balance and peacefully.

What are Haiku, Senryu and Tanka?

Remember: Senryu poems make the human, not the world around them, the subject of their creative endeavor. Humor and sarcasm are two of the most favorable elements in a Senryu and should deal with the human condition. Think about sexual matters, family relations, religion, politics, and anything that touches on the pain we experience through sorrow, prejudice, oppression, anger, and frustration. Senryu do not deal in sentimentality.

 

I haven’t written any Senryu before so here goes… I’ve written three…

 

Lusty lips

Pouted

The Viagra

Swallowed

Peacefully

Downed in one

 

His lust overwhelmed

He was so fit

Did the splits

Balanced on one leg

 

Our mismatched passion

Made me quiet

Depleted

My balance

Broken

Well, that was a strange one! The Senryu encouraged me to play with words to come up with some unusual results!
