Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 161 #PhotoPrompt – Word Craft ~ Prose and Poetry

Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. Third week of the month is a photo prompt with our choice of poetry style. I’ve chosen to write a #Tanka – syllabic poetry – 5/7/5/7/7

 

 

It’s the third week of the month! Time for a #PhotoPrompt

 

What does this photo say to you? How does it make you feel… concentrate on emotions, or tell a syllabic poetry story.

 

This month’s photo prompt has been provided by Willow Willers.

 

 

Omen

 

All has been revealed.

Unfolded hands exposing

Finger tips unfurled,

Documented prediction

Etched in permanent blueprint.

Poetry Photo Prompt Challenge

 

COLLEEN’S 2019 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 145 #PHOTOPROMPT

 

 

It’s the middle of the month challenge ~ time for a photo prompt!

 

This month we will use a photo chosen by last month’s “Photo-Prompt” Poet of the Week ~ Jane Dougherty.

 

 

Use the above photo as the inspiration for your poem. Ask yourself questions. Be creative! What does this photo say to you?

 

I say this picture made me sad. Below is how this photo spoke to me. I’ve written a double Tanka.

 

Climate Change

 

The shadows of trees

Reflect retaliation

Birds make swift exit

But where do humans flee to

When there’s no longer safe place?

 

Nature’s lashing out

At man’s abuse and mistakes

Angels watch above

Planet drowns in salty tears

When will our people awake?
