Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 66: Destination and Guide

Entry for Colleen’s Poetry Challenge.  This is a senryu. The prompt words are guide and destination, but you can only use synonyms. I don’t know about this one. . . I tried XD The second line gave me a lot of trouble. Not sure which version sounds better >_>

  1. I must say that I love both of them. Your last line makes the senryu shine sharing where the words are leading. Good job. I’m glad you jumped into the challenge for this week. Remember to use thesaurus.com and the how many syllables website in the instructions. That will make your poetry writing so much easier. ❤

    • I can try to use the prompt in a more literal sense next time. Just referred to it symbolically (heaven = destination) and (angels = guidance to heaven). But I thought I adhered to the 5/7/5 syllable count? I recounted and still got 5/7/5 on both of them. . .

      • Yes, we want to use synonyms to the prompt words. That is the challenge – finding words and syllables to work. Don’t allude to the synonyms. Be specific. If you used the syllable counter in the post you should be good. I only mean to help folks learn how to write these poetry forms. If you follow the rules you are in there. ❤ 😀
