Faces glazed over

When she came into the room

With her diamond smile

She, a radiant beauty

Women elbowed their husbands

Raise a little hell
Never be a statistic
Give ‘em a good show
Watch their eyes widen in shock
Beat the drum and take a bow

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Pleasant & Read

Check her out, they said

She is likable enough

A pretty kitty

She keeps her claws retracted

Biting where no one can see

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Cold & Clothing

Brrr, bathrobe weather

Be sure to grab a sweater

In case you need it

Dig out the mittens and scarves

To stay warm inside the house

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Afraid & Grave

Anxious to be liked

She just had to be herself

Which was not subdued

So, she numbered her feathers

And stepped out wearing glitter

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Ghost & Hollow

Merely a vision

A floating, empty spirit

Died with life’s anger

Doomed as shadow land vapor

Exists to scare you witless

Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Color & Creepy

Oh, she is awful

Let’s her mean streak out at times

Lies right to your face

She’ll not rest until you blush

Even taught her bird to cuss
