Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No: 269 ~ Colleen’s Specific Form: Tanka Prose

L’ambiance Francaise

In her early 50s, on a whim, she enrolled in French
classes at her local university.
Her professor was quite impressed with how quickly
she mastered this romance language and allowed her
to skip a semester.
Weekly she sat at the language table with tenured
professors and even the university’s chancellor.
The requirement for all attendees was ‘no English’ to
be spoken.
Amazingly, she managed to engage in constructive

l’ambiance Francaise
Parisian scenic spends time
vacation real-life
virtual substitute swop
dream chaser Canadienne

When is Enough = Enough?

Today’s word prompt: long

express true feelings
taught them traits kindness concern
strangers surprised facts
changeless absence socials whys
first last face-to-face last first

genuine love show
years sacrifices dole-out
difference opinion speaks
automatic classified
negative female parent

to another y’all bequeath
rewards lifetime unworthy
mind-bending long time
secrets held protect loved ones
love bankruptcy birthright Mom

A-To-Z Challenge: Letter ‘C’

Chosen your project
Access aisles skeins yarn behold
Color charts must-have

Dedicated followers know I enjoy writing Poetry.
I believe the above is called a Senryu via definition: awkward moment
in one’s life.

My personal preference is for pastel colors although on occasion I’ve
dabbled in bright hues.

Listed below are three color combos.

The first is ‘analogous’ – colors next to each other on color wheel.

Second consists of two colors ‘complimentary’ opposite each other
on color wheel.

Third is known as ‘split complementary’ – begin with one color, mark
your complementary color on the color wheel then choose two colors
(one on each side).

A few abbreviations:
Color A: Main Color (MC)
Color B: Contrast Color (CC)

There are numerous hues of basic colors as seen in various dye lots.
When purchasing yarn for your project it’s important to buy enough
skeins of same dye lot. Why? Over a period of time one may discover
a slight change in the shades.

There’s also multi-colored yarn known as variegated which is dyed
different colors. Each section repeats with progression of project.

Today’s picture share is of a Temperature Throw in its beginning
stages. The colors (usually 8 to 10) change with the temperatures
on a crocheter’s pre-designed chart.
