This week, our challenge was to write a syllabic poem using the image provided by Lisa Fox. I liked the spooky quality of this photo, as if you can sense spirits are hanging about the grounds of this mansion. We got some great poetry this week. Have a read.

This week, I chose David’s poem “The Bridge, or: the Voice” to feature. David picked up on the mood in this image and told a mini ghost story. I really like this form too. Another new form to try!
The Bridge, or: The Voice Before me, one way to go; stone spread, long and straight. There, I uncertain linger, hand upon steel gate; An eerie scene. Fir trees dull grey, reflections black, pale bridge ghost white; Feel nary weak breeze waft... chest- straining, tight... 'Tis too serene. Somewhere, time-stopped stillness hints at love and loss; Turn back, murmurs faint voice, 'tis not your time to cross, The gateway's sealed. Clarity sweeps through me, under hushed, cloudless sky; Feet turn, lungs exhale, dark allayed as I- Feel despair yield. © David-The Skeptic's Kaddish
