#TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 266 #Shadorma #ThemePrompt #fire #water @ColleenChesebro


Hello, beautiful readers! I wasn't sure I'd be able to participate in this week's #TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge because I'm about to leave for a four-day camping trip, but an idea came to me and I ran with it. :-) 

This week's theme is fire and water. I chose the form of a Shadorma from Colleen's Poetry Cheat Sheet. This form has six lines with a syllabication pattern of 3-5-3-3-7-5. It doesn't state whether a picture can be used or not, so I chose to add one. Hope you like it! 


Lust

quench my thirst
or set me aflame
with your touch
satisfy
my urges - please, don't leave me
drenched in cold water
