A ‘Waltz Wave’

For Tanka Tuesday, Colleen offers us this photo by her friend Terri Webster Schrandt as inspiration for us to write syllabic poems.
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!

I love how the syllables fell down like soft rain

It doesnt allow me to access the link from this app
You’ll see it if you look directly at my page instead of through the reader.
But it’s a link to Singing in the Rain 🌧 🎶
Yes, I love the musical. Exactly
My all time favourite film ❤️
I agree with Terri David this is so visual. The verse just falls beautifully.💜
