Colleen's 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 162, #ThemePrompt

Wasn’t sure what the theme “The Circle of Life” was about until I read Willow’s. It’s just what it says it is.

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Challenge Badge

It’s the fourth week of the month which means I’ll pick a theme for you to write about for this month. On the Monday before the next challenge, I’ll select someone to choose next month’s theme.

This month’s theme is: “The Circle of Life”

I have done two sets of Haiku. In syllables of, 5/7/5, 3/5/3 and 2/3/2. One set on human life and the other set on nature.

Of the womb we are born

We flourish and grow full bloom

Then we turn to multch

*******

Born from womb

Encompassing life

All things die

*******

We’re born

Then we grow

We die

Seeds germinate life

Blossoms germinate full bloom

Life drains down through roots

********

Blossom grows

From seed and life roots

Cycle ends.

*******

Blooms

Petals spread

Then sleep

*******
