Bittersweet

Day 25 (Write a poem that begins and ends with the same word.)

bittersweet

Bittersweet
it melts from dark brown
~chocolate
transferred from your lips to mine
sharing tears so bittersweet

A Tanka

Day 12 (Write a poem using syllabic verse).

As I slacked off on the meter prompts I thought I would have a go at a syllabic verse that I have not tried to write in before. I have been interested in tanka for a while now, so here is my first attempt.

from the falls
the moon gathers spray
a moonbow —
the arc of your smile
a golden treasure
