Sorry about the delay. I’ve just got in from the back end of beyond so the round up will be followed at the speed of light (almost) by this week’s challenge.
So many entries this week! I’m afraid I’m not going to have the time to do justice to all of them. The overall picture is of a great diversity of interpretations. The dominant reds and the aggressive slashes of rain have called up angry, even violent poems. Those of you who picked up on the presence of a dog in the painting have felt a more soothing, calming influence. Yet even the poems expressing regrets and a lost past, have a strong beat to them, not always anger, but a positive feeling as though the poet is not going to take defeat lying down. Very well done all of you! Please visit and read the other poems, they make a very vibrant collection.
First in was from Chris
Sri with a triolet followed by a san san.
