#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 249, #ThemePrompt #Haiga #Haiku @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro

Hi everyone! Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge and have written a Haiga in a 5-7-5 syllabic format. You can find Colleen’s post HERE.

From last month’s challenge, I chose the theme for this month:


Did you know November is Kindness month?

Patience, love, kindness all super powers!

Well done! ~Jules


Great Haiga! No, I didn’t know it, or better I didn’t remember it. Yes, November is kindness month, I wonder if it was chosen because of the change in the weather, lots of people gets depressed this time of the year.

lovely theme. And the best part of this is that we already come with it >> like those commercials of yore that claimed an ‘Eveready’ battery– those long-lasting batteries– already included for reliability inside the device. haha. Or the ‘Intel Inside’ ones for computers. The ones for humans would read: Kindness Inside! How cool, right?
Ever-Ready… got it? I do.
And, no, I did not know that November was kindness month. How cool you are for making me aware of this. Thanks.

What a fabulous senryu, Harmony. I was so excited when you chose this theme. We need more kindness and empathy in our world. Bravo for such a great theme. <3

Miriam Hurdle

Great poem, Harmony! We need the superpower to be kind and sustain kindness. Well done.

Roberta Eaton Cheadle

This is a great poem, Harmony. I must work harder at this superpower. Life is just so busy that it often feels as if there just isn’t the time to be kind and patient with others when they can’t do what they should be able to do. I wonder about the world’s education system…

I like kindness compared to a superpower, Harmony! What a great picture to combine it with too 🙂 Thanks for a great theme.


A wise and powerful message in a very few words! Well done.

I love how you liken kindness to a superpower- in some cases it certainly is!

How wonderful, Harmony. Kindness is indeed a superpower. It has the ability to change the world. Loved this.

Oh, I love this, Harmony! And I love that any month would be named as Kindness month. Just beautiful!

Short and sweet! <3
