#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 221 @ColleenChesebro #SYNONYMSONLY

Synonyms this week are: search and lost

For Search – Look, or hunt for lost  astray, Steering me off

I wrote a couple of Etherees… This was in the window of an art shop on King’s Parade, Cambridge.

Hunt

For cheese?

Three dear mice

Full of colour

Someone’s creation

Their artsy makes me smile

Steering me off my planned course

Where was I going? Oh, yes work!

I’d rather stay and play with you guys

Maybe see you later, I finish soon!

Look

What’s this?

Pucker mask

Astray it hangs

Placed at eye level

Imagine its sad plight

I pause for a brief moment

Faceless it waits patiently

For its owner to come pick it up  

It has become a stray mask with no home.

Hope you enjoyed the Etheree poems. Bye for now!
