#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry Challenge No. 292: #Tastetherainbow-Color Poetry #poetrychallenge #poetrycommunity #tanka #writingcommunity

Here’s Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge #292. This week is Taste the Rainbow Color Challenge.

My husband and I went for a Harley ride last Saturday. It was a beautiful day in the low 80s, with no wind, cloudless blue sky, and the road to ourselves at times. I didn’t think I’d be inspired to write poetry until we drove by two tall rock walls that got me thinking and creating. It was a much-needed moment where all my stress and worries disappeared, and I became a part of the surrounding trees and nature.

back of the Harley

surrounded by granite walls

fall revives my soul

roaring amongst the rainbows

through the soul of the mountain.

  1. I only ride a bicycle, but I can certainly relate to the feeling of freedom on the open road.

    1. Yes, a bicycle offers that freedom too, Pete. I avoid the roads though and stick to the trails.

    1. It really is, Balroop 🙂 Yes if we could all roar through the rainbows, it would be amazing.

  2. Beautiful, Denise. Thank you for sharing. The way you describe being on the motorcycle is how I feel when I’m on our boat. There’s something special and peaceful about it. <3

    1. Thank you, Mar 🙂 I understand how you feel about your boat, i used to love going on oyrs growing up. It’s wonderful to have that sense of freedom and deep peace.

    1. Thansk, Collen. It was a short distance from the house but an amazing trip and that moment sure woke me up!

  3. Aaaah. I can feel the sunshine and wind, Denise. “…through the soul of the mountains.” What a beautiful line. They do have souls. Beautiful tanka, and I’m so glad you got to unwind. <3

    1. It was a perfect day out and I was glad to be a part of it. I could really feel that soul. Thank you, Diana xo
