Poetry Coloring Pages

The adult colouring craze has come to poetry via Tweetspeak Poetry. I love coloring so  it was a natural for me to follow the links on their weekly newsletter, download the pages and have some fun.

Found Object Photo/Poem challenge

I’ve enjoyed writing with other Poetry Friday poets this week. Using prompts from found-object photos collected by Laura Shovan, each day brings a new photo. It is fascinating to see how these photos take the writers in different directions.

On day 9 (Tuesday) the photo was sent in by Mary Lee Hahn. And the poem that photo inspired in me is below the photo.

Found Object for Day 9 – Photo by Mary Lee Hahn

Reading the Prints

The animals that passed by here
were very focused and in gear
their noses sharp, following prey
perhaps a mate, or the day’s pay.
And the exhaust-filled oily scent
suggests excessive speed their bent.

The younger of this species, though
lie lazy angels in the snow
their tracks often defined by curve
of laughing play and show-off verve.

Go HERE to read all the Tuesday poems. Laura’s doing this challenge to help celebrate her birthday month. I believe this is the third year she’s writing a poem-a-day in February and inviting others to join her.  What a great tradition!
