#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™‚

Beautiful haiku with so much in it.


Gorgeous haiku.


Oh yes. Oooooh yes! Lovely.


So aptly summed up!
Winter chill that always bites!


The winter sun can be deceptive.
For some reason, my comments on my tablet keep being rejected…hopefully this works!

I am so far behind this week, I’m just now reading your poem. Sunshine can be deceptive! Here’s looking to warmer weather.

D. Avery

Yep, we can have some very sunny, very cold days in winter. Nicely done.


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

Mae Clair

That’s superb, Harmony!
It speaks perfectly to the weather I’ve been having for the last several days. Brilliant!

D.L. Finn, Author

Like this, Harmony πŸ™‚ Yes, had many days like this!

Selma Martin

You’re so good at this, Harmony. Just perfect wording. Love. Thanks.

Yvette M Calleiro

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˜‰

Super poem, Harmony.

Gwen Plano

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

Roberta Eaton Cheadle

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.

Annette R Aben

Ah, it can seem that way around these parts! I’ll take the sunshine even on the coldest of days. πŸ™‚


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/

Diana Peach

I love the twist in this one, Harmony. Sunshine doesn’t always mean warmth. I won’t mind a little though. Lol <3


A beautiful Haiku, I know exactly what you talking about πŸ’œπŸ’œ

Jan Sikes

Lovely, Harmony! You nailed this perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

Staci Troilo

Nothing like bright sun on a snowy day… to blind you. Great take on the prompt, Harmony. Stay warm!

Priscilla Bettis

Nice haiku, Harmony! Yeah, those sunny winter days are frigid!
