Poetry Friday ~ Spell & Treat

25 Oct
Vashti Q-the writer next door-Vashti Q-poetry friday-tanka-spell-colleen chesebro-poetry challenge

Hi, everyone! Welcome to my blog.

Spell and Treat are this week’s prompt words chosen by Colleen Chesebro ~ The Fairy Whisperer.

*The catch is that we can only use the synonyms to these words in our poems.

Colleen hosts a challenge that anyone could participate in called,Β Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge every Tuesday, and you have until Sunday to create a post featuring your Haiku, Tanka, Haibun, Etheree or Cinquain poem. She is an author and poet, and also does book reviews and so much more on her blog. Be sure to check it out.

I dance around flames
Outstretched arm cast magic charm
But now you’re the witch
making me forget my name
Your sweet, sweet love is to blame

I hope you enjoyed the Tanka. I used magic charm and sweet as synonyms for spell and treat. Thanks for the visit!

        I’m just starting to acknowledge Halloween. The abundance of stories and posts on WordPress is helping. πŸ™‚

        I love scary stories and movies. Since I was a kid, I loved being scared. Halloween can be a lot of fun. Get creative with it. πŸ˜€

      Hello, my friend! Thank you. I really don’t do much for Halloween anymore. Occasionally, one of my friends or relatives would have a little get together, but more often then not, I stay home, watch scary movies, and eat popcorn.
