place is
no
longer
safe for you
my love
we
can stave
them off no
longer despite
our efforts
to save
this
land from
destruction
leave me
now~
don't look
back

‘What do you see’ prompt

For today’s #WDYS prompt, Sadje offers us this image of the silhouettes of a tall giraffe with a woman standing in front of him. The background shows a beautiful hued sky in pinks and oranges.


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
