Pieces of my soul ( a nonet) These words are all I have now for you, You will find pieces of my soul, Each word a chapter of life, A syllabic deluge, An ardent torrent, But all unsaid Safely cached, Unsent, Dead. Via : https://wp.me/p4xNpg-b1w

Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 161 #PhotoPrompt

This month’s photo prompt has been provided by Willow Willers. I have attempted a Nonet for the photo prompt.
