This week’s Poetry Challenge at Colleen Chesebro’s Word Craft Challenge is a #Photoprompt. I’ve written a double Tanka written in syllabic form of 5, 7, 5, 7, 7 for my interpretation of this image. I found my interpretation very different than what others saw. Do you see it?

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 178 #PhotoPrompt
It’s the third week of the month! Time for a #PhotoPrompt
Vashti Q. Vega, from last month’s challenge, has provided the photo for this month’s challenge:
Remember, a photo can be a metaphor for your poetry. Think about the mood, the theme, and the color. Think outside of the box. We know there’s a crocodile, but what else is going on here? What do you smell? What do you hear? There’s more here than meets your eye. Surprise me!
On the Monday before the next challenge, I will select a poem from this week’s challenge and share it on my blog. Whoever I pick will choose the photo for next month’s challenge! Email your selection to me at firstname.lastname@example.org a week before. Thank you!
For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, you can write your poem in the forms defined on the Poetry Challenge Cheatsheet (click the link below):

Watching in silence
Beneath nature’s greenery,
The eye focused on humans
Suspended and awaiting.
Required to mend the world.
Last chance for healing.
Backwards – a dangerous path.
It’s our move – tread with caution.
