Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge #PhotoPrompt – Word Craft ~ Prose and Poetry

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 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):

The Watcher


Watching in silence

Beneath nature’s greenery,

Camouflaged seer.

The eye focused on humans

Suspended and awaiting.

Positive action

Required to mend the world.

Last chance for healing.

Backwards – a dangerous path.

It’s our move – tread with caution.
