quest for green mountains
and brooks that enticed her,
walked away to explore
forests of pines and deodars
and Mother Nature’s blessings awaited
in the form of a translucent treehouse.
A dream come true, a loving reminder
that Mother Nature gives and nurtures
one more blessing? an explorer?
would she find her true soulmate –
a lover of pine trees!
two parakeets sat
at their window

Thanks to Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which has inspired me to create a syllabic poem based on color. I chose green, a symbol of balance, nature, spring, and rebirth. It’s also the symbol of prosperity, freshness, and progress. My focus was: “think about the different ways you can use color in a poem.”
I chose Etheree, which consists of 10 lines of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 syllables. Etheree can also be reversed and written 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
