a child’s memory
sweet is her pink fruit smile
leg, hands and limbs (mdw)
where the waters flow afar
the village glows with sweet plum flowers (Anonymous)
The Tan Renga challenge (from Kristjaan Panneman) is to build a haiku off the two lined stanza. A great challenge as we usually build off the body of a poem in a Tan Renga – join us.
The photo was part of the Tan Renga prompt.
I was born for the shadows
form hidden by sepia day
… is in the eye of the beholder
do they really mean what they say?
catch me on the cold nights
basking in the sun
I and the moon’s reflection
dancers we are one
you can never touch me
but you can always try
reach into tomorrow
beauty is in the …
I just found this wonderful Shadow Dancer prompt offered by Bastet at Mind love miserys menagerie. The photography (top) is by Nickolas Muray . The photograph below is my shot of a whimsical sculpture in the National Gallery of Art.
Take this stone
create a beginning
touches more points
as it moves
a sunken piece of mass
As you move forward what is it in the past that propelled you? Fear, a challenge, a friend, an enemy, money, debt…?
Was your move forward physical, spiritual?
Alone I never feared change or forward motion. For me “Forward” is a march toward adventure. As a mother, that move forward presents a different challenge. The ripple of the circle in the water reminds me of the move forward. It’s a challenge when it involves others (those we love). There are edges of the circle (consequences) I cannot see or foresee. The best I can do is hope (and pray) that those I love will weather the forward moving ripples in their paper boat of life.
HOW do the ripples inspire you???
WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge: In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says FORWARD to you.
Perhaps it’s a path you yourself have taken, the building where you’re starting a great new job, or the curve of your partner’s pregnant belly. It could be an image that shows a physical move, or something that evokes a major life change. We look forward (ha!) to your interpretations.
