Hello, beautiful readers! Colleen Chesebro posted her #TankaTuesday Poetry Challenge this morning. Usually, I don't get to work on my poem until later in the week, but I'm on spring break and about to leave for a camping trip with my sister and our kids, so I wanted to get my poem in before I left. This week's prompt is about ekphrastic poetry.
For our art inspiration, we are writing a poem about the following painting by Claude Monet called "The Artist's Garden at Giverny." I've chosen to write a haiku, which consists of three lines with a 5-7-5 syllabic pattern. Haiku are usually written about nature and seasons.
walk among flowers
stress dissipates with each step
love transcends worry
What do you see in this painting? I'd love to hear from you.
