Angel Frost – A #Tanka

Welcome to my contribution to my weekly #Tanka Tuesday poetry challenge. This week, I kept the prompt word “Angel” and changed “devil” to “Lucifer.”

Both words have many connotations. Depending on how you use your synonyms you can modify the meaning of your Tanka poetry in many ways. Don’t be afraid to experiment with synonyms. Sometimes subtle meanings pack the most punch in your poetry. Play with the words for different reactions.

REMEMBER: The best poetry has layers of meaning.

“A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds.”

~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

Angel Frost

Lucifer’s artwork –
lacy fingered angel frost,
sketched by stinging winds.
Winter’s artistic palate
hiding spring beneath the snow.
