#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRYCHALLENGE #256 @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro #SpecificForm #Haiku

Hi everyone! πŸ™‚

Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which asks for a Haiku. I’ve used sunshine as my Kigo, as it can appear in any season.

You can find Colleen’s post HERE.


I’ve chosen a Haiku in three lines of 2-3-2 syllables.



a fool’s gold?

deep chill


I hope you enjoyed this short verse on how sunshine can fool us into thinking it’s warm when it’s something else, brrr πŸ₯Ά Β πŸ™‚

  1. Harmony, this is an excellent haiku. There is a wonderful element of surprise here with sunshine, fool’s gold, and deep chill! I love the way this came together! <3

  2. Great poem, Harmony! That sunshine has tricked me a few times. We don’t get many cold days in South Florida, but when we do, that sun is always shining and playing innocent. Lol! πŸ˜‰

  3. Wow, Harmony, your poem is stunning. You’ve captured the season in just a couple of well-chosen words. Beautiful!

  4. This is so true, Harmony. In South Africa, the sun usually shines, but some days have a bitter wind in the winter and it is very cold.

  5. When the snow is still on the ground… Even with the sun out – I check the outdoor thermostat reading. This morning at 7:30am it was 17F / -8 C. It’s warmed up at 9a to 21F/
