Life’s footpath

embrace your life’s path

yonder in a verdant field

bargain to the end

#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 263, 3/1/22: #Tastetherainbow-Color Poetry

Colleen’s weekly challenge is to choose your own syllabic form and a shade of green to feature in your syllabic poem. You’ll receive bonus points if you don’t use the name: green. You’ll also receive bonus points if you can also incorporate a different meaning for the word green in your poem.

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #220

Reena has a quote this week for our weekly prompt.

“Life is a mountain. Your goal is to find your path, not to reach the top.”

  1. If only we can keep some of those roads open for all to walk…
    Lovely. I know I’ve seen this road 😉 Maybe even walked it when I was younger.
    I think I heard on the news that NYC’s Central park had a 6 mile walking path around the park – something like that.
    If you live a city – take the time to find a park sanctuary!!


  2. I just came back from my walk. It was a wonderful wander. I can relate to your words. It took a while but I have learned to embrace my path.

  4. So amazing, Eugi. What a radiant photo and a clear instruction. It’s true; our goal should be to find and focus on our own path, not on reaching the top. Wonderfully said. ❤


        1. Thank you so much for reading my book, Colleen. Most of the poems may not follow form but reflect my feelings thus the title “Life’s Spilled Coffee”. I am copying my PoetrySoup poems to my new blog because I want my work that is elsewhere also on one of my blogs. Wow, what an experience trying to find a suitable theme for my new blog! So many of them don’t work. Yikes!


  5. Always moving forward, always accepting reality, and always choosing what’s best for you. A recipe for living! Good one, Eugenia, and what a stunning image. 🙂
