Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 81, ENCHANT & SHAPE, #SynonymsOnly

20180411_130338

I love visiting the art gallery on Belford Road in Edinburgh, and this tanka is dedicated to this sculpture I saw there in the gardens.

An enchanting face,

Sculpture that sees, smiles and lives,

Art’s favourite place,

Closed nostrils don’t breathe the grass,

Air spells curiosity.

 

I used hypnotise for enchant, and sculpture for shape.

Here’s the link to Colleen’s weekly challenge:

Thursday Doors : Edinburgh Queen’s Gallery

For this week’s Thursday doors I’m focusing on my recent day trip to Edinburgh. I’ve been in Glasgow for a few days with my hubby and some friends so I popped over to Edinburgh to see my mum and dad. We went for a Chinese dim sum lunch and then mum and I took the bus to Hollyrood Palace. Here’s a photo of the crags of Arthur’s Seat.

Now for the doors. The Queen’s Gallery –  an art gallery at Holyrood Palace complex.

And here it is with a bit of a magic wand makeover… From Prisma.. Using the Gothic touch.

This gateway… leads to the tea room where we had a very royal Cappucino.
