COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #EKPHRASTIC #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 195 #PHOTOPROMPT @ColleenChesebro

Here is this week’s Colleen’s 2020 Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge No. 195.

I learned a new term Ekphrastic. “This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). Lisa Thompson, from last month’s challenge, has provided the photo for this month’s challenge.”

My Tanka Poem is based on this picture.

MAGIC

She sits silently

Under the mushroom’s safe glow

The humans too close

They’re searching for her magic

A gift the fairy can’t share.

    1. Thanks, Mae 🙂 I connect them to mushrooms too. Then I had to research to decide which spelling of fairies to use here. I orginally had the e in place of the i but went with full cute here…lol. Xo

      1. I think the “e” is just ingrained in my head, LOL. I never even stop to think when I type that word. Probably because I have a trunk novel where faeries are key to the plot!

      1. My pleasure, Denise. It would be wonderful to write your children’s stories again. I’ve written many when taking a course more than ten years ago. I now revise them one at a time.
