Thursday photo prompt: Dance #writephoto

A Haibun The endless expanse stretched all around the horizon. Not a soul was in sight. The grass had dried up to give the land a golden hue. The patch of green marked the path leading to the amphitheatre that was encircled by the stony columns withered by travails of time but standing proud. They… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Dance #writephoto

Hope(A double etheree)

Light, Vibrant, Spreading love, Now cloistered deep And Melancholic, It Fluttered in fury, Darting at the grey cover, Slipping through tiny crevices, The icicles now with a dull sheen A Suffusion of warmth so radiant. Leaving a fiery trail on dreary grey, The errant ray full of lively spright, A cavalcade of surging hope, Flaunting… Continue reading Hope(A double etheree)

Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 174 #PhotoPrompt

I have written an Etheree on this beautiful prompt by Jude, from Tales Told Different. She sang to the tune of falling raindrops, Trying to fight darkness with her light, Her silent thunder rained down love, Her dazzling eyes dispersed gloom, Unrestrained and fiery, Rejunevating, Infusing life , Into all, Blooming, Life.

Thursday photo prompt: Otherworldly #writephoto

Life, A cobbled clutter, Lost in its maze, You stumble and fall, Sharp edges grazing your soul. But, A brave heart, You trudge along, Till you find new openings, A stony orifice of hope, Unveiling a new kaleidoscope, Of places unseen, Of places not been, An enigma beyond the stars, An endless quest of desires… Continue reading Thursday photo prompt: Otherworldly #writephoto
