A ‘Waltz Wave’
this 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!

You’re most welcome
It triggers a response
A waltz wave in conflict
It reminds me of war
Time to pack up
Grab what you have
There is a river to cross
