Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. Shadow and Light.

This week Colleen Chesebro of Fairy Whisperer has set us our weekly prompt of Shadow and Light.

This week I have written a Tanka using a picture taken on a short break with people I really love and our dogs. I hope I have conveyed how happy we were. 

Rules and Pingback Here

We were four giants

With two playful loving dogs

Our story is told

Here in shadow and in light

Out of dark we made all bright.

    What a fun time. I feel the joy and abandon resonate from your words, Willow. Well done! โค

      Nice thought which one. Can’t think of a rock song off hand but “We are Giants” from take that comes to mind but it’s hardly rock n roll ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒน

    sky blue to green hues
    to the shadows of the hounds
    found… a yellow ball

    the photo… big
    a mile high… much more I sware
    touch down took awhile

    Such a moment full of fun
    We were relaxed and happy, everyone.
    The sun the sky the sea just out of view
    We had it all the dogs did too.
    Oh! It seems so long ago
    T’was but two months in truth you know. ๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒน

    Ha! Got here in the end
    The breeze my parachute did send
    Out to sea,, back now to tend
    My notifications dear friend

    The view looking down
    A nice spot you had found
    A sunny summers day too
    Best wishes to your dogs
    Yeah, okay and you, as if
    I’d forget, Hey ho, must go

    Joking and poetry aside, I have to ask, what lens was used to take the amazing photo?
