Short Story Tanka

May is/was Short Story Month. So I have written an Acrostic & Telestich Tanka.

Shifting ideas
Honing words for amusement
Oblique memento
Released emotions whisper
True moments of symmetry

Comic Books Tanka

Yesterday 07 May was Comic Book Day so I wrote an acrostic and telestich Tanka for the occasion:

Characters so fab
On pages mod or retro
Moods caught in limbo
Inventing with pen and ink
Casting daydreams with shadows

Tanka for World Poetry Day 2016

A Poets Tanka

Preserving moments
Observations caught in time
Echoes in silence
Thoughts reflecting melody
Searching for flawless rhythm

A Poems Tanka

Perceptions narrowed
Overseers of lost dreams
Emotions set free
Momentary reflections
Silence fills the emptiness

Magic Tanka

Here is my poem for this weeks prompt for Facebook Group: Poetry in Motion. Using the words THOUGHT and MAGIC as well as a photo.

Mysteries of thought
A time-worn aporia
Games of sensation
Illusions from a warlock
Conjured moments of drama
