Green With Envy (Haiga-Senryu)

For Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 130 #SynonymsOnly, my words were Bright & Convey so I used Sparkling & Spoken in a Haiga made with one of my watercolors.

Senryu:

these leaves sparkling green
do not mean what they used to
flower's spoken for

Roots (Tanka)

For Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 125 #SynonymsOnly Origin & Write, I used Roots & Pen (though to be fair, I was using Pen as a way to enclose, rather than to write…).

Left bare – my roots dried
Below singing her sorrow
Human waste chokes life
She dawns a dress to pen Spring
Disease, it seems, lets it fall

2019

This is one of my own watercolors that inspired me to write, or dare I say to pen?
