Reblog: My Take | Ruth Scribbles

Ruth, I’ve selected you to pick the syllables for next month’s challenge! Please email me at tankatuesdaypoetry@gmail.com with your two words a week before the synonyms only challenge. Have fun and pick some great words.

Ruth wrote a perfect Gogyohka poem featured below. Notice how she wrote with breathy phrases. Please click the link below and stop by for a visit.

The words are love & harmony. My first attempts at writing a GOGYOHKA poem. I chose to use synonyms of love and harmony but to express those ideas negatively.

Adoration
Becomes dull
Tranquility gone
No respect
Divorce
