#photopromptpoetry: S.O.S.

I had the honour to be chosen poet of the week for Colleen Chesebro’s photo prompt last month. The prize was to be able to choose this month’s image. This one is by Susan Cipriano from Pixabay

ocean sky and

blue water, branching wide,

rooting deep where bird-fish skim-swim


or rootwards delve. Leaves wave, kelp-green

flags, pleading. Can you see

their reflections

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Wow… I got goosebumps reading your words: “…rooting deep where bird-fish skim-swim…” I love this comparison. When I close my eyes, your words describe the sight in my mind. Spoken out loud, this Butterfly Cinquain transports me skyward! ❤

  2. You made an interesting choice for the art, Jane, and your words actually offer hope for what is left after what seems to us an inevitable tragedy. Nothing says man has to be a part of it.
