WEEKLY POETRY CHALLENGE STARS | #PhotoPrompt: @lisalisathom

Aishwarya, from Kitty’s Verses, picked a great pair of words for us all to work with this week for our #PhotoPrompt challenge. How many of you could have written more than one poem from this image? There was so much here… train tracks, the color green, desolation, leaving, coming, etc. Lots to unpack in this image!

I’m always thrilled each week to see what you all come up with. There is so much creativity! Congratulations to everyone who joined in. You’ve all out done yourselves this week! Here’s everyone who joined in via Mr. Linky:
