Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge NO. 92, “Bewitch & Treasure,” #SynonymsOnly


There was once in her garden a Princess named Louise
Saw a frog in the pond who seemed to be saying “save me please”
Gave a kiss to the frog
Tired of having a monologue
He was turned to a prince and he was immediately free

He was called Prince Eugene who was enchanted
Told the princess she was a gem and her courted
Got married, people cheered
But then the prince felt weird
A lot of pressure, “could I go back as a frog?” he blurted

He went back to the witch and asked her to turn him back
Life in the castle was tedious and he didn’t mind getting sack
He said goodbye to the Princess
“Sorry but please don’t make a fuss”
He’s used to life in his pond and he’s not making a comeback*
