#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 247, #SynonymsOnly #Haiku @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro

Hi everyone! Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge and have written a Haiku in the 3-5-3 syllabic format. You can find Colleen’s post HERE.


 Willow Willers from last month’s challenge chose the two words for this month:

Twilight & Hue

Beautiful, Harmony! I always find it fascinating how so much can be said in so few words. Well done! 🙂


In every season… there is a reason.

Roberta Eaton Cheadle

This is very interesting, Harmony. A great poem.

Selma Martin

Hi, Harmony, I was having major problems trying to comment. But I was attempting them on my phone. Error message every time. I appreciate you, know that.
This haiku, wow. Splendid. From the photo, that to me looks like a lamp with a shade and then the synonyms you used to string those lovely words together. I love it. Thanks for sharing. Again, I appreciate you. Be well, I bless your day.


Beautiful, the light is taking over! Always wonderful to see the start of a new day!

Joan Hall

Nice one, Harmony. Very atmospheric.

Jacquie Biggar

Love the mysterious feel of this piece, Harmony!

Good one, Harmony. I will be pondering death’s shade for a while 🙂

This one causes a number of thoughts around death. All good though. Thanks


This is stunning and I love the tinge of darkness!

Gwen Plano

My goodness, your poem took my breath away. Beautiful!

Staci Troilo

That first line really grabbed me. Nicely done.

Colleen Chesebro

Harmony, you captured the “hue” with the imagery of “death’s shade and soft owl’s light.” It speaks of the golden light often seen at death, perhaps before entering the Bardo. This is very atmospheric for this time of year as well. Bravo! <3

Priscilla Bettis

Wow, awesome poem in so few words, love it, very atmospheric!

Michele Jones

Enjoyed this one. It makes you think.

Jan Sikes

These few words create such a powerful visual, Harmony! Well done!
