Colleen Chesebro’s #Tanka  Tuesday #Poetry Challenge – Inspiration & Plan synonymsonly


longing as I was
to taste your awakening
sleep stole my intent


imagine …

IMG_0454a space to rest
shelve thoughts …
for a while

soak in sky-blue mist,
watch early morning sun beams
soften life’s terrain,

levelling the ‘field of play’ ….

Cinquain –    Synonyms for ‘MAGIC & GREEN’


                                                                        tender silence

                                                                   casting love everywhere

                                                                       losing all my reality


Somewhat darker ….. yet ….


forceful envy

grabbing freedom away

sprouting shameful envious thoughts



Colleen’s 2018 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 91 Synonyms for ‘Magic & Green’

May i interrupt You for A Kiss?

IMG_3909walking by the couch I saw you sleeping
i could hardy keep my hands away
i wanted to tap you gently on your shoulder
“may i interrupt you for a kiss? ”

the walk was so exhausting
the breeze and sun combined
the hills were steep
and trees, so tall …
but you didn’t lag behind

because you sleep so soft now,
i think it’s only fair
i ask before i wake you,
“may i interrupt you for a kiss?”

i walk around real quiet
trying not to ‘wake you’
but doing dishes can get loud
and, the calls i have to make …
although … there’s just a few

really … you’re still sleeping,
how do you do that?
though i love to see your soul at peace …
“may i interrupt you for a kiss”?



Monday Muse

and who are we to think
that Monday would be smooth?

shining, as the sun can’t help but do
in the summer time

instead, walking gravel,
can’t find soft sand
soles, sore with the roughness of this bumpy road

but, there’s always a bright side to a shady,
an up to a down
a right, to a wrong …

proving again,
how profound we are
