National Poetry Day

is today!

One of the projects taking place nationally is Places of Poetry. You’re invited to pin a  poem to a map and have until October 31st to do so. If you’re at all interested in poetry have a  look at the site, post one of yours or just enjoy what you find in your area.

Here’s mine,

Tanka on the green

My Wrong-trainered feet

sink into unmown wet grass

fine spears still verdant

long and Squishy until spring

welly time at Mont le Grand

Lazy poet’s thursday tanka

Back for this week or maybe more.

Eye shining like flame

bright through countless soft feathers

focussing on you

small human you’re being watched

by this skilful predator

 

 

Lazy Poet’s Thursday Tanka for Tish

Deep colour spectrum

scribbled with arachnid silk.

Textured rays, fibres

terra pots disintegrate

and crumble back to grey dust.

Tish took and edited this fascinating photo, which she named ‘Through a Web Darkly’, and very kindly offered it as inspiration for our writing. I’d written this before I had a reply with permission to post! Isn’t it a good image? I love it, thanks Tish.

Full Tanka Day Seven

I’ve reached the end of the weekly writing challenge with day 7, it’s been fun and surprisingly easy. I’ve used a photo from each month from March, to inspire me and last night I took this one for September.

Echinacea

you’re the Daisy of daisies

purple coneflower

guide me safely through winter

most splendid and healing plant
