#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 245, #THEMEPROMPT #Etheree @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro

Hi everyone! Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, and  for the first time, have written an Etheree poem mirrored. You can find her post HERE.


Eugi (Franci Hoffman) from last month’s challenge picked the theme:


Below is my Mirrored Etheree response in a 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 syllabic format.


Moon touched poem on picture of moon: Moon So close I can touch An illusion Dreaming though awake Invitation or ruse? Time to harvest my desires Moonlight … fancies of flight … I choose Whether to dream, wake, or die tonight Lit by light of harvest moon let us fly Better to swoop and soar than waste the night In restless slumber and dreams mind bound Let us run free and dream awake Never must I life forsake Take the risk, make the leap Dream big and aim high Vision come true I touch moon’s Hallowed Soul

Take the risk, make the leap. Dream big and aim high… We all must hear this, young and old. Great job, Harmony. What a positive and encouraging poem.


Wonderful, I specially like the ‘Let’s run free and dream awake’ it’s kind of matching my own poem.
