“Mother Nature’s Con,” A #Haiku
Hello! It feels good to be back writing poetry again. I’ve missed all of you. The challenge words this week for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge were “stark and trap.” I’ve been trying to figure out ways to challenge the participants because you’ve all gotten so darn good! I’ve continued on the theme that you can’t use the prompt words except to find synonyms to use in their stead. Fun? I hope so. It sure made me think and choose my words differently.
Stark = severe
Trap = con
Severe conditions –
brilliant sunny, windy days,
Mother Nature’s con.

Our weather has been abnormally dry and warm in Colorado this year. I can’t remember the last time it rained. The last couple of days have brought cold with nary a cloud in the sky.
None of this bodes well for those of us that live where the wild winds can cause wildfires. As you can see, there is plenty of fuel in the fields surrounding our housing area. It is a bit of grassland that I like to wander in to connect with the meadow fairies.
It’s time to pray for rain.
Thanks for stopping by! ❤
