Charm & Time…

Easter and April Fools Day rolled into one.  I sure hope the Easter Bunny left the chocolate eggs and hasn’t been playing jokes.  Here’s a fun challenge I found through FMD’s blog.  If you get chance, check them out.

Colleen’s weekly prompt challenge – I will give you two words. Choose synonyms from those words for your poetry. You, the poet, now have more control over the direction of your writing. Follow the rules carefully. Don’t use the prompt words. Here are the TWO prompt words for this week’s challenge: CHARM & TIME.

Here is my attempt:

Fortune Teller, read,

palms for trinkets; did she, speak,

futures to pass life.

I’m new to the world of poetry so not sure if this poem fits the required defined Haiku/Senryu standards but I guess there is no real right or wrong way and the important thing is giving it a go and having a bit of fun.

For reference taken from Colleens site:

HAIKU IN ENGLISH 5/7/5 syllable structure. A Haiku is written about seasonal changes, nature, and change in general.

Senryu in English 5/7/5 syllable structure. A Senryu is written about love, a personal event, and have IRONY present. Click the link to learn the meaning of irony.

Have a great day, I’m off to eat some Easter Eggs!  Enjoy!
