Tanka Tuesday – Ekphrastic Poetry –

Today’s challenge explores Ekphrastic poetry.. This form pf poetry is inspired by art or photographs.  David, from the Skeptic’s Kaddish, provided the photo for this month’s challenge. You can find Colleen’s post HERE  to read her guidelines.

“This is a photo of David’s father. Please be aware that he is no longer with us. David dedicated his blog to his father’s memory. You can read more about his journey HERE. With that being said, take a deep look at this photo. Don’t describe what we all can see. Look into the camera lens… what do YOU see? What is revealed to you? Now, write your syllabic poem”

Wonder exists there
Outside one’s personal grasp
Reach for the unknown
Cherish reality now
Opportunities abound
