            the first 
           rays of dawn
        through cream canvas
          my eyelids open
            gave a smile 
             to my lips
       I lay still and gazed
   at the dappled golden shadows
   painted onto the thin ceiling
  artwork supplied by kindly trees

  I listened to the tweeting birds
     singing of new beginnings

The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.

Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.

Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. Today, I’m inviting Lynn Love at Word Shamble to join the challenge.

  1. ” artwork supplied by kindly trees” I am SUCH a tree person. This really resonates with me. I love the picture. These are special kinds of poems. I wonder how many of them you would have to write to publish a chapbook…

    A chapbook is a small collection of poetry, generally no more than 40 pages, that often centers on a specific theme, such as exotic foods or wild animals or Justin Bieber. It’s typically saddle-stitched (like a pamphlet or magazine) and is a format well suited to smaller print-runs.

    1. Thank you for that! It’s So helpful! It’s bookmarked and I’ll definitely look into it when I come back from Wild Boar Wood, and I’m settled. That’s when my work will begin in earnest.
      I hope you don’t mind that I won’t be writing poems about Justin Bieber though!
