The crops are long gone
replaced with tall golden grass
within and without
abandoned in warmth and waste
only the sun visits now
As part of the #TankaTuesday weekly poetry challenge presented by WordCraftPoetry.com I would like to share my first Tanka poem that was inspired by a photograph, an Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt as they say.
My next zine is focused around Tanka verse (which is helping me familiarize myself with it more), and I appreciate this challenge. Above is the photo by mollyroselee from Pixabay and the words it granted me.
Thank you for visiting. Be well.
