Poem Please

…darker than gods pocket ~ Trevor South

It’s that time again. I had fun putting some of my favorite dark, moody, ominous photos together in hopes of coaxing a poem out of you. (If you’re new to Photo Poems check out this post or this one and you can read some of the wonderful poems in the comments)

Or just jump in and create any kind of poem these photos inspire;

  • A caption for each photo becomes the poem
  • Create a title and do an acrostic with a word from your the title
  • Let the mood of the photos invite words

It only takes a few minutes and it means so much to me, so please … pretty please will you write a poem inspired by the photos for me.

Mine is in the comments :)

Have you ever found shells like this in a riverbed? I was shocked when I found these in the dried up river bed on one of my hikes this week. It made me feel like I was at the ocean for a minute or two :)

I love it when I have enough energy and inspiration to curate a collection of my photos that work so well together. I try to create a particular mood that is coming through that I want to share and I hope it evokes something new in you :)
