Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Etheree #Haiku #Poetry Challenge No. 161 #PhotoPrompt – Henna | But I Smile Anyway

This month, I’ve chosen Ritu to pick next month’s image for the February #PhotoPrompt! I’ve also shared her poetry!

Here’s the link to her original post: Butismileanyway.com

Henna

Stains
Hennaed
Signalling
Celebration
The deeper the stain
The stronger the love of
Mother-in-law to-be
His name tattooed on her hand
A challenge, to find it, himself
A game to prove his patience and love
Once found, their true exploration begins

Ritu 2020

Henna patterns stain
The hands of the bride-to-be
Time for married bliss

Henna stains
The hands of the bride
Married bliss

Henna
A bride's hands
Married

  1. Oh, WOW! Thank you so much for bestowing this honour upon me, sis!

  2. I like what Ritu has done with the henna photo prompt. It looks like she did the same haiku progression of decreasing syllables that you did with your winter series?
