March 1st is the start of meteorological spring. The first day of spring is Monday, March 20, 2023, at 5:24 p.m. EDT. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, this is marked by the arrival of the Vernal Equinox.

With Saint Patrick’s day on March 17th, the color of the month is green! 💚

This week’s challenge is a photo prompt. This year, I’ve asked my friend, and photographer, Terri Webster Schrandt, from secondwindleisure.com to share her photos with us for inspiration. Terri runs a weekly photo challenge called Sunday Stills. Check it out HERE.

Terri says: “This is a photo of Nine Mile Falls, after which our little community is named.  I captured this last March when the water district let out the water of the Spokane River to create Lake Spokane. When you drive by, the mist from the falls hits the windshield enough to use the wiper blades. In certain light, it really looks this green.”

🍀 Write your poem using the photo as your inspiration. 🍀

*Remember, we can see what is the photo. Don’t just describe what you see. Experiment with metaphors. Use your senses to describe the scene. Use color psychology, the location, and other sensory details in your syllabic poem. If you write a free style poem, make sure to include a syllabic form on the same post.

Here are some sites that will help you write your poetry and count syllables:
