Colleen’s Weekly Tank Tuesday Poetry Challenge…


This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art and/or photographs. Anita Dawes from last month’s challenge has provided the photo for this month’s challenge:

They say
Hide’s horror
Unspoken pain
Dead things are planted
Dare you enter the bus
Hear soft whispers from dead lips
Spend a night in the broken shed
Where soul eaters wait, shrouded in black
All things swallowed by time, under hot sun…

  3. Ow, I like that sense of apocalypse. That thought came to me too when looking at this image, but I couldn’t put it into writing. Excellent job in creating this piece. And according to Colleen, you picked this image. Thumbs up on the choice.
