#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRYCHALLENGE #259 @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro #Colour #TasteTheRainbow #Diatelle
Hi everyone! 🙂
Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which asks for poem based on colour. I’ve written a Diatelle, which has fifteen lines in the following syllable count … 1-2-3-4-6-8-10-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1, and a rhyme rhythm of abbcbccaccbcbba.
You can find Colleen’s post HERE.
heart is wrecked
what to live for?
I ask in retrospect
wild waves carried me far from shore
what is it about me you so abhor?
I failed to achieve analytical review
the lost relationship like a swing door
was life with me such a sore chore?
silly me to expect
kindness or more
I’d not checked
I hope you enjoyed this Diatelle. This is the first time I’ve explored this poetic, syllabic form.
Have a lovely day! 🙂
