#TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 216 #SYNONYMSONLY @ColleenChesebro #haiga #senryu

Here’s Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 216, Synonymons Only. The words to work from are Eager & Hope!

I chose a picture to work with and came up with this Hagia, (5/7/5 Senryu and image.)

The flame is my faith

Longing for you to emerge

From the dire darkness.

  1. Faith in any form is a hard nut to come by sometimes in these dire days.
    Keeping a positive flame alive helps all of us 😀

  2. Beautiful, Denise. I keep a candle burning in my office. Its flame reminds me of all those on my prayer list. It’s also a comfort to me in times of need – much like your poem. 💗

    1. I love you kept a candle lit and that it reminds of those to pray for and gives you comfort. There is something special about the light from a candle:) Thank you, Gwen xo
