WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY
SPRING is in the air! This #TankaTuesday challenge explores Ekphrastic poetry, inspired by works of art.
💐 This week, using the painting as your inspiration, please write either a syllabic poetry form or a freestyle poem, including a syllabic form (both on the same post). 💐

I have chosen to try a Diatelle this week is syllabic beat is 1/2/3/4/6/8/10/12/10/8/6/4/3/2/1.
My dream place
Where my mind’s ease
Lifts me, to gentle space
Perfume heady take my mind home
To a kinder time, happy and carefree
Pastel soft my mood lightens as memories flood
Murmurs in my ears, flowers in my hands
Time slips by like hourglass sand
I meld into this place
Remove the years
