This week Tanka Tuesday challenge’s prompt is a photo prompt. I soon as I saw this photo I had the feeling of isolation, being lost in the middle of the forest. When I looked closer at it, I saw the girl had a certain contentment in her expression, it’s like she had chosen to be there, she was fine and protected by the tree in the background.
Carried away to another dimension
Leaving behind all the struggling and oppression
She is free and protected now
Breathing deeply and staring ahead
Solitude won't be dreaded
This week Colleen’s Poetry challenge is Poet’s choice.
You know how much I love photography, it’s a form of expression for me. I try to show my feeling through my clicks. The same in relation to writing poems. I love it when I can put both together: photography and poems.
I took this photo few weeks ago. Hubby and I were strolling by a lake nearby and we saw this gorgeous swan in another side of the lake, they never came close before, so we didn’t expect when he/she started to swim towards us. It was a lovely surprise! We were so happy, like kids when receiving a new toy. We took photos and recorded this gorgeous bird. We really enjoyed that moment.
The ragged surface
Scarcely shinning upriver
Under the moonlight
An enheartening secret
For all her eternity
The words for this week are Comfort and Worn, synonyms only! I’ve chosen Enheartening and Ragged, and of course the full moon had to be part of the poem! Have you seen how gorgeous the full moon is shinning this month?
