Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo Prompt: Signs

This week’s prompt from Sue Vincent of Daily Echo  is Signs.

I wrote a Tanka then reversed the verse  which though no longer a Tanka still flow and made sense… I hope. 

The reverse idea comes from micketalbot

Rules and Pingback Here

                 Signs

Bleached white by the sun

Then on green felt ‘proudly’ hung?

Killed by man alone

Why display this in your home

A sign man still has to grow.

A sign man still has to grow

Why display this in your home

Killed by man alone

Then on green felt proudly hung

Bleached white by the sun.

    I agree, Willow… I hate hunting for sport. Food, I can understand… but not trophies. These, thankfully, are not exactly that…

    Reversing the tanka worked really well!
