WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 227, #THEMEPROMPT @ColleenChesebro #WritingCommunity #poems #indieauthor #authors

Here’s Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge. This week is a theme based on, Travel and Journey.

I decided to use a Tanka format 5/7/5/7/7 and a picture from last week’s hike for inspiration.


The moment floats by

safely behind a wood fence

when nature beckons

gently evoking wisdom

recognizing souls can fly.

    1. Thank you, Teagan:) It’s hard not be be inspired around all of nature’s beauty! Hugs on the wing right back to you!

  1. Yes yes. The moment one realizes that souls CAN fly, that’s the moment the wings show you how to. Loved it dearly. Thanks for sharing.

    1. It was a perfect moment sitting on the bench reflecting! Thanks for sharing the fairies! Xoxo

  2. Beautiful, Denise! I love it. I’m telling everyone to remember that there is no punctuation or capitalization at the beginning of each line in syllabic poetry. Especially Japanese poetry. <3

    1. Thanks, Colleen:) That’s going to be a hard habit to break! I saw that again in your book, which I’m enjoying.
