In photography, the interplay of light and shadow can be used to create a graceful dance or a dreamlike scene. On the other hand, the stark contrast can communicate a mood, ambivalent or cruel. As you see, the photographer’s desire determines the result. Creativity is a powerful gift.
Thanks to everyone who participated in last week’s photo play and poetry prompt. Here is an evocative poem from Richard we enjoyed:
Threads of light
tatter the lace
like rising froth
from dark waves.
And a single bird,
free of this dark cloth
speaks for us
with its silent flight.
POETRY PROMPT: Choose a photo from the post and respond with a poem. Do you see a hero’s quick-thinking rescue or a villain’s clever escape? Leave your poem in the comment box. We’ll be reading.
Be sure to check out the highlights from Photo Prompt participants on the Photo Play Pinterest board! And keep clicking and/or playing with words.
Sometimes we feature your poems in Every Day Poems, with your permission of course. Thanks for writing with us!
