Micro Poetry -Play & Guess

In response to Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge # 67, I have written a tanka and a haiku.

The prompt words are play & guess, with the condition only to use their synonyms.



Anxiety mounting

the match poised equally

deep speculation

the long battle continues

to ink the name as winners!





Scope of mother’s love

impossible to fathom

deep rooted affair!
