Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 28 – LAUGH & CRY

With Colleen’s challenge, you can do haiku, tanka or haibun.  I’m not enthralled with haibun and find myself yawning half way through reading it.  

On Monday, I like the Ronovan Writes haiku poetry challenge.  Today is Tanka Tuesday.

That’s the way it is around these here parts.

Time to grab a cup of Jasmine tea with honey and then find a picture to serve as my muse.


Laugh, cry, hope, sorrow;

words lost on the feline mind

contemplating pine.

When perceptions create walls,

pine cones become barriers.
