Threat or Promise

Mom said to be careful

When you let your face pout

Where you choose to make out

You’ll freeze that way

In a  blink, life does change

With a click, time stands still

A picture shares the thrill

Of a moment

Twaddle Tongue

Diana Peach selected the image for this week’s photo prompt. It’s an image from Pixabay.com, compliments of “Pretty sleepy.”

Scourge of the peaceful realm

Rascal knave garrulous

Armed with wit scurrilous

Have you no shame

Cease your verbal assaults

Turn full from yon door

Show your face, nevermore

Away with thee

within reach


They were

Floating high

In the night air

Worlds I sought to touch

Sometimes, seeming so close

That all I needed to do

Was to stretch as far as I could

And if I closed my eyes while reaching

I could pull myself up to where they were

Drain the Snake

In response to Colleen Chesebro’s #photoprompt this Tanka Tuesday, I submit this Shadorma.  FOLLOW Colleen to stay in the loop of her weekly challenges.

Here is the photo we had to work with:

The image is from Pixabay, by Michael Seibt. 

To control

Serpent tendencies

I sit here

Play music

To hypnotize the wicked

Risking my own life
