This week in the Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 145 we are being asked to write in response to the photo prompt selected by last month’s winner of the challenge, Diana Wallace Peach.. I have composed a double Etheree – The Moonlight Concerto

Double Etheree – The Moonlight Concerto
the ugly troll
hid deep in the woods.
Despite his appearance
he had the sweetest nature.
His greatest gift was his music
that drew outcasts from the dark shadows
to listen beside the moonlit river.
Among them was a windblown poppy seed
that was enchanted by the sweet sounds.
As if by magic it unfurled
into a crimson flower
that swayed to the soft notes.
For the only time
in his sad life
