Thank you for responding to last week’s challenge. The reblog buttons seemed to be out of action for some reason, so here are the links to your poems:

The tritina is a form that sounds easy…but isn’t. I’m pleased you gave it a try and even more pleased at the results.
This week I’ve chosen a painting for inspiration. It’s entitled Moscow Metro and it’s by Michael E. Arth. It’s an arresting scene, a moment caught on canvas, and I find myself thinking about that girl, who she is, where she’s going, and what the intense expression on her face signifies.
I wasn’t going to inflict a particular form, but I think a cascade might be appropriate.
Have fun and post the link to your poem in the comments. I’ll reblog if the buttons work for me this week.

Thank you, Jane. That is a very interesting painting!
I’m glad you think so. She sticks in the mind, that one.
Thank you, Jane. That’s definitely an arresting scene in the painting.
Something makes me think it’s a good thing she’s on a moving escalator.
Sounds very interesting, the new form. The image is wonderful.
I think it’s a good painting.
Indeed. Thank you for sharing.
full of possibilities (K)
Intriguing expression full of possibilities. Let’s see what shakes out…
I’m sure it will be something interesting 🙂
a bit dark I’m afraid…
I’d have been surprised if you’d got something lighthearted out of this one.
I didn’t want to read anyone else’s before I did mine. I’m having a hard time concentrating today, so this gave me something to focus on. 😀
Not the cheeriest of subjects to focus on, but you did a great job!
Thank you! 😀
