#TankaTuesday Weekly #Poetry #ThemePrompt Challenge No. 286, 8/23/22, #LessonsFrom Nature

It’s been a while, but I thought I would take part in the syllabic poetry challenge, Colleen hosts every week! Sorry I have been gone so long, again, Sis!

Lessons from nature

Use the theme above to write your choice of syllabic poem. Your poem must include or be about a lesson from nature.

Colleen Chesebro
Today’s poem is inspired by this photo I took, last week
We should persevere
Mother Nature tells us so
Grow, no matter what
Difficulties will appear
Solutions come from within

Ritu 2022

One simple, but strong Sunflower standing tall, despite the heatwave and water shortages.

    I’m stunned by the dryness in this photo, Sis. I would say this is somewhere in the desert southwest of the U.S. not England. Oh my. I hope the drought ends soon. I love that you could hop on and write some poetry. ๐ŸŽถ Let’s get syllabic! LOL! ๐Ÿ’œ
