Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Poets Choice of Words #Edinburgh #Shadorma #Poetry #Photography #City #New Year
It’s poet’s choice of words this week so I thought I’d share with you some of my photographs of Edinburgh – a city I love so much – and my first attempts at Shadorma poetry…
It calls me
This Scottish City
Edinburgh’s dark shadows
Perfect time and place
Adorned like parcels
Pink in blue
My home from home forever
The best gift of all
I see you
Bright castle hiding
Such a blue sky highlights you.
Nestled on a hill
Me and mum
Two gals out
But much more – mother daughter
Friends, always best friends.

Ah, you can see I’m home-sick already! Missing my mum and dad and Edinburgh. Sigh.
Do you have a home from home that calls to you too?
