Tanka Tuesday #tanka #poetry

Updated: Jul 7, 2021

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 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.
