Here’s Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge #234. This week is Synonyms Only and the two words are “Green & Morass.”
Although we are now offered more symbolic poetry choices, I went with a favorite format Haiga. This is a combination of a picture and Haiku or Senryu, but the poem can stand alone without the photo.
My synonyms are: naive for green & confusion for morass.

Well done. “Fear’s cold grip”–I’ve felt that. Too often.
Thanks, Jacqui:) Yes, it’s all to familar isn’t it?
Very nice, Denise. Your poem speaks volumes!
Thanks, Joan 🙂 Glad you could hear it!
Oh, those naive days, Denise! Very well done.
So true, Miriam! Thank you xo
“Fear’s cold grasp” is so evocative. Nicely done, Denise.
Thank you, Staci 🙂 xo
I love the combination of photo and verse, Denise. One so echoes the other. Fantastic!
Thanks, Mae 🙂 It’s a perfect combo of two of my loves!
Oh, how often fear does exactly that, Denise! I love this!!
Yes it does, Jan! Fear is powerful if we give it that power.
Excellent Denise !
Thank you, Eden xo
Haiga is my favourite form too! Good choice of image and words!
It’s so much fun to combine photos and words, isn’t it? Thanks, Elizabeth!
This is a superb poem, Denise.
Thank you, Robbie 🙂
Reminds me of old abandoned homes, especially during Halloween!
I like that, Jules 🙂 My favorite time of year.
I like autumn too. 😀
Thank you, Mark 🙂
“Naive confusion…” I’ve felt that before for sure! I always enjoy your haiga! I do believe you should figure out how to market a calender of haiga. I would buy one for sure!! <3
That seems to be a common state we’ve all hit at times, isn’t it? I always just made them my Christmas present for friends and family, never considered selling them. Thanks for saying so and if I could figure out how to do it cheaply I would! xo
I’ll think on it! 🧐
Great use of the synonyms, Denise! Great haiga! 😀
Thanks, Vashti 🙂 it’s a challenge to use the words.
