Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 165 #PhotoPrompt – Moon

Well, guess who had the honour of choosing this month’s prompt photo?

Me, that’s who! And I took it myself, as well!

Remember, it’s syllabic poetry that Colleen wants from us!

So, here’s the photo.

Two senryu for you you, 5/7/5, 3/5/3 and 2/3/2

I smile at the moon
Peering through the eerie clouds
Light, in my darkness

Ritu 2020

Moon appears
Through the eerie clouds
My night light

Ritu 2020

Moonbeams
through the clouds
my light

    Hey Ritu, I am doing a poetry competition which will be posted tomorrow and would absolutely love it if you choose the topic, if you don’t mind, and encourage people to enter. I’m not forcing you or anything so you don’t have to but would love it if you did.

    Your good friend,
    Midnightlion ❀️

    What an amazing photo, Sis. It’s so atmospheric… worthy of a magical story or even a horror novel. Ohhh… a British mystery with this book cover would be intriguing. I loved your Haiku. Well done. ❀
