TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 285, 8/18/22 #Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt

© Colleen Chesebro.

This week’s challenge explores Ekphrastic poetry, inspired by visual art or photographs. Reena provided a piece of her artwork for this month’s challenge. There’s plenty of imagery in her art, and it’s a great inspiration to write your poem. Remember what you’ve learned about the psychology of color in your poetry.

This week I have chosen an etheree for my form for the Ekphrastic poem.

Gaia Gives.

A kaleidoscope of earthy colours
Escapes a knowing, talented hand.
So much that the inner eye sees.
The guiding hand of Gaia
Brings meaning to fingers
And peace to the brain
Would that all could
Share the view
Gaia
Gives.

All I can say is life has been so hectic that even Morgarna’s hectic madness looks preferably admirable to me. Anyway I missed last weeks episode so here is a two for one !

*********

As the seven suns rose over the watery planet Morgarna and Merlin set off to find out what was happening. Merlin complaining she had comprised his manhood in a very high pitched voice! Morgarna said it served him right but she did feel a tad responsible…but that would not last. She was just relieved the Viking attack had just been a bad dream.


It took them ages to hop and scrabble through the undergrowth until Morgarna stopped dead and let out a huge RIBBIT! , “What now Morgarna, you’ve not stopped moaning since we set off, what’s wrong? ” asked a very irritated Merlin. Morgarna took a deep breath and changed back to herself the only difference being she was all dressed in green and her hair and skin were green too! ” I am not doing this as a frog Merls I have just had enough! ” A sudden laugh made her turn on her heels to come face to face with Merlin who was also all green! “How long have you been like that” Morgana asked ” from the get go, hun, I wondered how long it would take you to Morph!


Meanwhile back on Earth but in another reality Morgause sleeps in a castle on the island of Avalon, under the tender care of Vivienne. As she sleeps the waters of the lake lap rhythmically against the rocks that support the castle in its solitude. Morgause lays deathly pale surrounded by herbs and flowers hand picked by Vivienne especially for their healing powers. Months had passed and still Morgause sleeps

As Morgause sleeps she dreams she was in a laberynth, blindfolded and pursued by shadows that click and whisper. She is exhausted but she knows she must not sleep or the shadows will consume her. There is a sweet smell that keeps her awake she knows somehow it is protecting her.
In her dream Morgause hears voices, Merlin’s, her sister’s and the gentle tone of Vivienne’s voice as she speaks healing spells . Still she is afraid of the pursuing shadows.

Morgarna finished her cigarette and kicked the snoozing Merlin, come on sleepy head we need to get going again….Merlin yawned “I was dreaming of Morgause in Avalon, I saw her on a bed of herbs and flowers, she looked so pale and still but she is not resting, there were shadows all around her.”
“Was the Lady Vivienne there? Merls is she looking after her?”
“Yes hun, she is incanting spells and embroidering .”
As they reached the brow of a hill the saw a set of wooden stairs surrounded by grass and trees almost hidden from view. “I think we have finally arrived Merls ” Morgarna said pointing to the steps.


The elegantly dressed figures clad in green approached the steps with caution Morgarna waved a hand and they both became instantly invisible. They could hear voices above them that sounded similar to James and Thomas. “We had to jump that Merlin and that pushy woman came in and found us arguing! “
“All I asked you to do was to get the lay of the land to see if the place was worth an invasion… and you have so far got imbroiled with a young ghost, two time traveling busybodies and you left Esther behind” Mr Hippo Campus did not sound at all happy!


Reaching the top of the ladder Merlin and Morgarna were amazed at the sight which greeted them. A huge bubble full of algae, flora and fauna and a steady constant rain. It was full of all types of amphibian and fish. Mr Hippo Campus was not alone. “Oh! look ” Morgarna thought “Thomas and James are shrimps look Merls” Merlin replied ” not even a meal there!

The Lovers Meet

® willowdot21

This week I have written an Acrostic Nonet linked to a mirror Nonet. The Acrostic part spells The Lovers, the second part, the mirrored Nonet is about Ghosts of the station that are seen on the plynth of the statue.

The hub, central point, the place to meet.
Heartbeat of the living station
Everlasting friendships made
Lonely hearts will apply
Open minds still try
Vast crowds rush by
Earnest vows
Repeat
Slow.
What
Type of
Ghosts lie low
Unseen by us
Excavators of
Tunnels and trenches watch
As life goes scurrying by
Women who waited and manned jobs
All watch together as people meet.

K.L.Caley’s#writephoto: Ribbit.

You know that feeling when you are buying that house of your dreams it’s all going to plan then you discover. A. You have Squatters and B. You’ve been Gazuprd! Yes! #Gazumped by Aliens!.com Merlin and Morgarna are not best pleased!

.

“Well” said Gail, “that has never happened before, any idea what it was?” Morgarna and Merlin nodded, “It was a portal and by the look of it a time and space one.” Morgarna said and Merlin finished by adding “And by its structure I’d say it was alien.” Lady Esther was looking very confused by all this Gail though was almost bouncing off of her chair , ” This is so cool like that new TV show Dr Who. It sort of simple Esther, it’s like you have some sort of machine that allows you to travel through time and space and possibly the Universe! Ohh! Woow this is so fab!”
Merlin was a tad taken aback by this off the cuff answer but yes indeed basically Gail was correct. Morgarna could read his mind and smiling she spoke to him telepathically, “yes Merls she has the measure of the situation! “



The next morning found them sipping coffee and Morgarna was already on her third cigarette. They had all the relevant literature and bank details spread across the table plus Merlin’s research on portals! Merlin was on the phone to the Estate Angent, “Sorry Mr Black who did you say the other interested party was, …….. Mr Hippo Campus… really? are you sure? Oh! Right you’ve never met him ! …….. Yes I get that , yes that is our final offer. ” Putting his mobile on the worktop he turned to Morgarna, “Did you get any of that, Mr Hippo Campus…” Morgarna was nodding as she blew smoke rings in his direction.” Mr Sea Horse ” Morgarna smiled as she stubbed out her cigarette. “Did you find anything out about the portal you were up half the night ” Merlin eyes lit up as he replied ” I did babes and I have a clear line to exactly where it originates from and it not here on earth, it is on the other side of the galaxy! and you and I are going there to meet Mr Campus!”
“Can we use the Anomaly or will we have to chance their portal, are you serious about coming with me? You normally leave all the hard work to me!”
“Morgs, babe really! I am hurt! Anyway I have made a few tweaks to the Anomaly and I have it set for the out and inward journies. Honestly I am in this with you …..really. “
Morgarna choked on her coffee!


Gail was dancing around the garden singing “Then I saw her face, now I’m a believer, not a trace of doubt in my mind, I’m in love oooooo! I a believer”
Esther was watching her from an upstairs window, ” yes the girl is dancing on the garden no idea of the plan, we have her fooled, not quite so sure about Morgarna or Merlin though they are a different kettle of fish if you’ll forgive the pun! But I think the little show the three of us put on the other night definitely helped” As she finished Esther touched her ear and smiled. She had no idea that Morgarna and Merlin were outside the bedroom and heard every word!


Merlin and Morgarna flashed eyes at each other and decided not to share their travel plans with Esther or Gail, Gail mainly for her protection. So they had a cup of tea , laced with whiskey in Morgarna’s case. The discussed Tom and James and Esther displayed what looked like genuine shock at the idea that James and Tom were aliens! Gail though had no such surprise, “I never took to them , cold fish no feelings , dead eyes and just so …..odd really can’t explain it …. they’re like things that are so unlike us” she ended, touching Esther’s hand , who flinched ever so slightly.


Later after they had settled the ladies and Merlin had set up a ‘portal block’ in and around the house so that Esther and Gail could get a good night’s sleep and not be surprised by Tom or James returning and causing more trouble, they walked back to the Lab. “Merls who do you think has gazumped us and do you think they are connected to Tom and James ?” Merlin Nodded “I do indeed Hun and what’s more I reckon they are aliens!”
Back at the lab Morgarna opened her laptop to look up the estate agent number, I ring these guys first thing tomorrow shall we up the offer I really want that house now it’s perfect.”
Merlin agreed, he was busy checking up on portal designs of the universe. He was just piecing things together when a screach from Morgarna made him shoot across to the kitchen.
“Look Merls , it’s Doctor Who back in Gail’s day early 60s,” there on her screen in black and white was William Hartnell in a funny hat ! Merlin let out a huge breath, “for goodness sake Morgs I thought you were being attacked, don’t do that! ” “Really babes, you care….” Her voice trailed off and she got of her stool and walked across to the aquarium. “Merlin , look she said the Seahorse, ……..he’s gone.

Merlin and Morgarna walked to the park and as they neared the lake the Anomaly appeared, there was no one around so they jumped.


Splash! Morgarna landed on a bed of wet leaves, “Oh! Shit, Ribbit , this has got to be a joke…Merlin ! ” She said looking to her left, “Ribbit, yup I here too, Ribbit!”
“What the F##k Merlin we are frogs , you didn’t tell me that! You…..Ribbit”
Merlin silenced her with a wave of his froggy hand and replied.” Babes what would you of said if I had told you? As to why Frogs well everything on this planet is amphibious? Ribbit”
“I’ll give you Ribbit” thought Morgarna.

And Gail was singing and dancing to this !
