For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a natural pool fed with streams. There is a mist on its surface and there are green moss covered rocks surrounding it.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS:

  • You can write a post on your blog and create a pingback to link to the original post.
  • Write an original story, poem or a caption.
  • There is no limit to words or format but keep it family-friendly.
  • If you post a response before next Sunday, I will be able to add it to my roundup post.
  • I will do a round-up next Sunday before the next Prompt is posted.
  • It is always helpful if you can give your post/story/poem a title.
  • Paste a link of your post in the comments section so that I don’t miss anyone in the roundup post.

Please tag your responses with

#Whatdoyousee or #WDYS

………

In dawn’s early light, 
a swirling mist
softly kisses
moss-coated rocks;
Creatures of the night
hum in a quiet symphony;
A chilly breeze blows, ruffles
the feathers of Mother Birds
in their cosy nests.
Their day begins even before the sun,
for it is time to feed their young.

This Week’s Prompt (Oct 14)– AFTERGLOW.

HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS:

Go where the prompt leads you and publish a post on your blog that responds to the prompt. It can be any variation of the prompt and/or image. Remember to keep it family friendly; this needs to be a safe and fun space for all.

Link your blog to Eugi’s Causerie with a pingback. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s prompt. Responses posted prior to the next Thursday prompt release can be included in the Roundup.

Three friends gazing at
the scenic purple waters,
faces basking in
the afterglow of playtime,
the afterglow of sunset.

Yay, I’ve written my first Tanka! Any thoughts or feedback? Let me know in the comments 😉
