Colleen’s Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt #TankaTuesday

celestial showers
besiege us as we step out
banal biases melt
in the light of our lustrous love
streaks of hope exorcise smog


when our paths merged
to gather divine blessings
shadows departed
dormant dreams whirled around us
ending layers of darkness

Thanks to Colleen M. Chesebro for this challenge, which explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). Cheryl, from last month’s challenge, provided the photo for this month’s challenge. 

Thank you.

  1. That’s lovely and the photo is amazing. Countless times I have wished for a decent camera and the time to just take off for a night and to capture a time elapsed scene like that.

  2. The first thing I did was look up the description for “ekphrastic.” I read this poem a few times and each time derived treating depth of meaning for it. Beautiful, Balroop!❤️

    1. How nice to see you Erica… picture prompts show many different ways and I let my thoughts flow. Sometimes it’s amazing to note the results. 😊 Thanks for your lovely thoughts.
