“The Rebirth,” #Tanka

The Tanka Tuesday #PhotoPrompt challenge for this week explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). Diana Peach from last month’s challenge has provided the photo for this month’s challenge, seen above.

“The Rebirth,” #Tanka

the forest's womb holds
my reflection in limbo—
grief cleanses my soul
saying goodbye, my tears fall
another rebirth awaits

Life is often a series of starts and stops, followed by many new beginnings. I’ve embraced the change. <3

  2. I hope things are going well with your ‘changing’.
    The illustration reminded me just a bit of artist Peter Max.
