My Take – TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 277: #Tastetherainbow-Color

Colleen has asked us to “. . . choose a syllabic form and a color to feature in your poem.” It’s also Pride month!!

The evening of the day I wrote a haiku about my back garden, it and part of our house flooded. (I even used some colorful language.) The birds never knew the difference. The gardens are perking up.

The day before the flood I put this sign in our front yard. (This part of the yard is higher than the part of the house that flooded. )

The green is luscious and contrasted with the browns, light stone, and concrete. The sign is bright and a focal point.

Picture taken day after the flood. The sign says “Hate has no home here.” And then there are four emblems – Black lives Matter, Rainbow, Trans, Peace.
rainbows showcase
joy love hope gladness
comforts sorrow

Thank you for reading!

  1. The birds must have read your lovely sign in front so that’s why they didn’t mind your colorful words after enduring a flood in your house.
