COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 232, #SPECIFICFORM

– Bruce Boyd

I chose to write an Etheree:

White

Fragile

Twirling girls

With their white dress

As seen from the top

Could also be flowers

Four dainty flowers in glass

All for us to admire with awe

Such beauty, such work of art, such joy

They could be four girls dancing with pleasure

I changed it by making it rhyme: aabbccddee and I’m calling it Ladylee’s etheree:

White

So light

Twirling girls

All wearing pearls

As seen from the top

Wish they wouldn’t stop

Four dainty flowers in glass

Were just been picked up from the grass

Such beauty, such work of art, such joy

Jump for joy, every girl and every boy
