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.
All has been revealed.
Unfolded hands exposing
Finger tips unfurled,
Etched in permanent blueprint.

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.
The shadows of trees
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?
