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

Beautiful

Lights twinkle

Edinburgh’s dark shadows

Perfect time and place

 

Your buildings

Adorned like parcels

Pink in blue

They twinkle

My home from home forever

The best gift of all

I see you

Bright castle hiding

Beyond trees

Magic night

Such a blue sky highlights you.

Nestled on a hill

Me and mum

Posing together

Two gals out

Shopping trip

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?
