Here is Colleen Chesebro’s Tanka Tuesday Weekly Syllabic Poetry Challenge No. 311. We had two words to work from this week, but using a synonym of them. The words were spring and green.
winter fountain‘s flow
camouflaged the forest floor
until magic blooms

Super feeling here, Denise.
Thanks, John. Really looking forward to seeing some flowers.
The bluebonnets are blooming and they are lovely
Denise, you were so clever! Love this spring and green poem!
Thanks, Priscilla 🙂 Really looking forward to this spring and all the blooms.
Makes me want to check my lawn every day! <3
Hope you get a nice surprise soon. Xo
I love reading Colleen’s Tankas.
Me too 🙂
Wonderful, Denise! 💕🙂
Thank you, Harmony 🙂
Thank you, Liz 🙂
You’re welcome, Denise.
It’s always hopeful to see those first flowers bloom. (Even amid a blanket of snow.) Lovely, Denise.
Yes, those first blooms offer so much hope and beauty, Staci, after some deary days. Xo
So expressive, Denise. Winter fountain’s flow gives such a profound visual. Congrats!
Thank you, Jan 🙂 It sure has bern flowing here.
This just speaks springtime to me. Good one, Denise.
Thank you, Joan 🙂 Never been so ready for it!
I love it, Denise! Great poem!
Yvette M Calleiro 🙂
Thank you, Yvette xo
Perfectly articulated, D.L. and goes just right with the image also.
Thank you! I’m so happy you liked it. Sorry about the comment posting issue. It should be fixed now 🙂
I love that metaphor Denise and the brave flower. Well-done!
Thank you, Balroop 🙂 To be that flower
Just Beautiful 💞
Thank you, Satinta 🙂
How beautiful, Denise. We were 53 degrees this morning 😳 and a few hours later we’re now 33 degrees with a steady wind blowing. Most of the snow is gone, but the trees don’t know what to do. The Bradford pear trees that line our streets have buds… I hope they bloom this year! Stay warm! 💜
Thank you, Colleen. We are 54 degrees here today. I broke a sweat on my daily moving my car back more in the driveway snow shovel… lol. I only get two feet a day, but I figure the propane truck can deliver by next week. Poor hubby hurt his shoulder in a fall, so I don’t want him to do it! Yes, the weather seems to confuse the trees. I was thrilled to see my new apple tree planted last spring survive the heavy snow. Our trees up here are late bloomers. Next week they are showing snow again…sigh. I hope your pear trees bloom for you. xo
Cute poem, spring is indeed magical!
Thank you, Elizabeth 🙂 It sure is.
Thank you, Jude 🙂
Very pretty! And such creative synonyms!
I really like this 💜💜
It’s such a lift to the spirit to see spring flowers. (K)
