Petals

in my garden
layers
treasured by seven locker charms
the hidden innocence
a sacred space
deeply

blaring
each petal whispering for help
obeying no set rules
the poisoned thorns
borders

This week’s prompt for Tanka Tuesday is synonyms only, and the words are sanctuary and follow. I’ve chosen sacred and obeying for my poem. I’m trying new syllabic forms and today I have Cinquo poem. This form consists of 5 lines: 2, 8, 6, 4, 2 and the poem should be unrhymed. I decided to write a double cinquo since I had too much to say.

The photo was taken with my Nikon. I rarely used it, but I thought this pretty rose deserved it. I’m sharing with FOTD.

Have a great weekend!
