Poetry Invoking Photos Let’s Write


What does this photo say to you?

I’m thinking we’ll do this every week … maybe more… with a new photo.

Write a short poem or lyric about what you feel when you see this photo. Does it speak to you? Speak to it. Speak to us.

Share your thoughts, words, and your poetry invoking photos with us as well in the comments. I’ll push them to posts as they come in. Hope you share yours.

Peace,

Jo

Red


 

these

red walls

of need

built from

constant

hunger

waiting

for you

for less

than

asking

set them

free

purify

your

soul

 


Your Decision


alignment

unanswered questions

belief is

just

the beginning

define the

answers

or

no one else will

Swallowed Whole


profound desire

to swim

through the oceans

and soar

to the stars

sacred powers

given from god?

a continued

fascination

what a story

we swallowed

it whole

Slipping


mind your life

not a clue

its our order

strong as it appears

mange it carefully

perennially

or doom

the treasure

to the

attention

of

eternal

time

The Tithe


once again i awake

at the top

a playground of

etiquette

entering the air

not to be ignored

a diamond glints

antiquated

no actual exchange

of moral code

a religious view

grows denser

near the nickel and dime

think of

the reasoning

behind

all

that

Tortured Tomb


a botched job

you dare to uphold

a debate

preserved

for posterity

to create

overpriviledged

design

a tortured tomb

a final resting place

a granite sarcophagus

well protected

dependent upon

that which

they do not

need to

know

Silver Darkness


disconnected

in real life

and real feelings

such gems

songs of reason

he wanted everyone

to care

opened up

and witnessed

the emptiness

do we need

the silver

exosed to light

polished ever brighter

in the dark

filled with

signs in

a glowing labyrinth

of total darkness

The Intruder


welcome to earth

population

of kings

a world of luxury

forbidden

palaces

of power

declaring war

on nature

an advancing army

unguarded walls

a facade

covering up

the burn

whitewashed

and sealed

more effective

impenetrable

but there is

an

intruder

Secret Agendas


no sign of it

on me

but if they would

or

if i like

or need

from others

something

not so extreme

with

coats wide open

and no city lights

to see

they could have

a spectacle

inside these

double doors

these weapons

are

the result of

other things

or i could

just talk to

myself

even then
