#TANKA TUESDAY Weekly #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 230 #EKPHRASTIC #PHOTOPROMPT

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

This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). Kerfe Roig provided a piece of her art for this month’s challenge.

I have chosen to try a Cromorna. New to me but I think it’s form fits the picture.

Cromorna is a verse form that has compact lines and exacting meter and rhyme developed by Viola Berg.The Cromorna is:
stanzaic, written in 3 quatrains.
syllabic, with 5/3/5/3/5/3/5/3/5/3/5/3 syllables per line.
rhymed, rhyme scheme abab cbcb dbdb.

Quest.

a search without cease
paper bird
ceaseless hunt for peace
dove unheard

traced in my mind’s map.
paper bird
the answer, a trap
dreams occured

infinite and spacial
it’s life’s spice
all celestial
tossed like dice.

This is part of Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge.

Nonnets to the window of the soul.

Deep dark and soulful ready to drown you.

Mocking or praising which is true.

Almond pools unfathomable deep.

Probe your dreams as you sleep.

Trace their line of  sight

Outline times flight.

The Window

Of the

Soul

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

 

Mystery holds  no questions for you

Seen the future  and it’s cover blew .

You see the horror of man

War, lies. Worms in the can.

Abuse sullies  you

Ruined, spoilt you.

Sad window

To the

Soul
