#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry #Challenge No. 305 #writingcommunity #poetrycommunity #poem #cinquain #butterflycinquain

Here is Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge #305. This week we were asked to pick three or more words from a list and create a poem. This random poetry word idea is from Jane Dougherty.

I decided to do a butterfly cinquain 2/4/6/8/2/8/6/4/2 using the list’s three words in bold letters.


dreary sunset
quartz on the window ledge
seizes my imagination
with love
reflective of a world’s desires
a gift from the fairies
brightens the day
