Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Challenge No 213 #Badger Hexastich x two – Beacon and Umbrella by Sally Cronin

This week a new format for me in response to Colleen Chesebro’s #Tanka Tuesday Challenge 213 – Photoprompt #ekphrastic

This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). The theme offers us a chance to explore the psychology of colours – I have chosen a Badger Hexastich

Badger Hexastitch One – Beacon

Shining
like a beacon
the vibrant canopy
anchors her to the cliff
safe above the
torrent.

Badger Hexastitch Two – Umbrella

Twirling
bright umbrella
defies monochrome hues
with a splash of colour
softening their
harshness.
