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. Only you can sum up a complex concept in so few words. Kudos to you!

  2. Beautiful poem, Eugenia! I love the idea of embracing one’s path while still bargaining to the end. 🙂

  3. Wonderful, Eugi. I love this 💕🙂

  4. 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!!

  5. Lovely image with an inspiring poem! Excellent take on the prompt, Eugi. 👌 Fields of green are so serene. 🙂

  6. I embraced my life path long ago. It’s the only way to go.
