Thursday photo prompt: Crescent #writephoto

For visually challenged writers, the image shows the dark silhouette of a tree against a cloudy sky. The horizon is lit by the gold of dawn, while a crescent moon hangs above the tree.

This week’s prompt ~ Crescent a Nonet

Above the field bathed in silver moon light.
Waiting to launch into the night .
She yearns so for company
Hearing the pounding hearts
Below her lust starts.
Pumping red, warm
Her fangs bared
Crescent
Moon

The Madness of Wills.

It’s nipping at my head
Making me wish I was dead.
My body’s attacking me
As well as stress you see

The bastards grind us down
Pushing under, they watch us drown.
All they want is money
All we want is peace.

They want the highest price
They may as well throw a dice
As our throats they slice
Betraying us times twice

Those siblings are a joke
A Will turns family to smoke.
The Executor’s job’s bespoke
He’s on a limb,no help, no hope.

The brother makes Cane and Able
Like best friends round a table.
Causing trouble at every turn
I hope the bastard burns.

This week I have linked my Décima with my entry for Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge which was Trip and Whip.

Décima Escape.

I need to feel wind in my hair
Escape my tormenter and ride
To blow my mind’s cobwebs aside.
Throw caution up into the air
Trip the light fantastic,with care
Bring to me my black stallion.
Sailing land like a Galleon
This is not time for me to bide
Whip up my senses, joy and pride.
Flee from the mean Rapscallion.

One-Liner Wednesday.

It’s pouring with rain hubby is up a ladder.

Me : “What are you doing.”

Hubby: ” Making covers for the new security lights.”

Me: ” Why?”

Hubby: ” Because they are too bright.”

#WordlessWednesday: Reject Nihilism

What ever happened to:”“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Vesti la giubba

So true, so topical

Jane Dougherty Writes

A gogyohka for the dverse clown prompt.

we resent masks

take to the streets in protest

I wonder if it is because we already wear them

we keep our sorrows hidden

all pagliacci behind the smiles

COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 191 #PHOTOPROMPT

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

It’s the third week of the month! Time for a #PhotoPrompt

Aishwarya, aka, Kitty from Kitty’s Verses, was Colleen’s selection from last month’s challenge. So Kitty has provided the photo for this month’s challenge. Colleen says “Remember, don’t just describe what is in the photo. Engage your senses and work with implied metaphors to make your poetry sing!”

This week I have written a two versed Shadorma about life choices. The railway track disapearing into the distance makes me think of the straight and narrow.

Look forward
Leave what’s behind you
The line leads
Direction
As sure as night follows day
One step at a time.

Like a train
Forward momentum
Rolling on
Growing strong
Straight ahead into the light
One step at a time .

This is part of Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka
