Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 174 #PhotoPrompt – Wistful

Colleen’s Weekly Syllabic challenge!

This week is a photo prompt that has been selected by Jude, from Tales Told Different.

Eyes gaze, wistfully
Recalling moments of joy
That time is gone, now...

Wistful gaze
Happy memories
All gone now

Gaze
Memories
Gone

Ritu 2020

In this photo I saw a lover looking wistful, then, upon looking further, I could see a mound of earth… what is it? Is it a burial place, a shallow grave?

    I like the way you condensed the poem from beginning to end. It also goes well with the elf-like picture!
