#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRYCHALLENGE #258 @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro #ThemePrompt #Etheree
Hi everyone! 🙂
Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which asks for poem based on the concepts of Memories: Sweet and Sour. I’ve written a stacked (or double) Etheree, which has ten lines in each stack in the following syllable count … 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1.
You can find Colleen’s post HERE.
Entitled: New Girl on the Block
Led to believe
We were best of friends
Spent most days together
Found a lot of common ground
Drawn into the inner circle
We five went on summer holiday
Wine, loose lips, destroyed any illusion
Shocked, even your oldest friend gaped askance
Could you truly mean what you had said
To the strangers sat next to us
When asked how we had each met
Pity the disabled
Truth from drink
I hope you enjoyed this double Etheree. I tried to explore the sweet in the first half, and the sour in the second, and overall, take a look at how friendships are not always what they seem.
Have a lovely day! 🙂
