My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Photo Challenge # 96

MindloveMisery's PhotoChallenge

Cellblock by Steve Snodgrass CC BY 2.0


Echoing of keys

Locks, bolts, bars and naked light

Bulb swings acid bright

Only shadows deep within

Cloud the pain and hide the sin

  1. Thanks Kim for this powerfully written and evocative response to the MLMM Photo Challenge.

    Your Tanka seems to have captured an essence and ambiance as hinted at in the image – words sounding out – echoing in the metal …. really lovely.
