Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge – #Haiku #Tanka #Haibun: HEAT & CONFUSE

Confused_cat_gif

We may be miles apart
From a land so far away
But your spirit is here
I can feel the heat of your spell
Scorching my skin
Your words in my mind
Warm breeze whispered
Through the chimes
I cry out wordlessly in pain
Maybe it’s a sign to move on
This point might seem trite
I’m still as confused as ever
But the aim is…
…please let me sleep…

the light has gone out
the heat of your spell is there
still confusing

Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 39 – MIRROR & HARBOUR

tumblr_n44uhxfo1f1t627vxo1_500

Mirror, mirror on the wall
I think this is my call
I see a very busy blog
Like having my own catalogue
Ladyleemanila is the name
One day I’d like to be a dame
I hope I’m doing justice to it
Up to five blogs I can commit
I write fiction and non- fiction
Everything under the sun
Different challenges and prompts
As long as they’re perfect for a stomp
I take lots of photos when I’m out
Up the mountain, along the harbour
I like being such a blogger
Macros, oddballs, skies on my route
I like reading the other blogs
It’s like having a dialogue
Liking and commenting on them
Some of them I found like a gem
I found some friends and followers
Writers, comedians, mothers, actors
They’re like a support group for me
Better than having a shopping spree

Mirror in my hand
What reflection do I see?
View in the harbour

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #153 Star & Bloom

blossoms2 blossoms

stars of spring
flower buds begin to peek
hundreds of white blooms

petals with silky hearts
flutter down as gentle rain
blossoms are here

each one beautiful
snowdrop, crocus, daffodils
canvas of nature

fragrance of flowers
air of spring brings health and life
rain comes on the wind

spring is here
birds fly from there to here
winter bids adieu
