This Photo Wants to Be a Wordy 30 19/30 #npm23

I discovered the Wordy 30 form, a spin on the game Wordle, from an Inkling challenge shared by Margaret. Trying to write a poem in just six words is challenging enough, but each word can only contain five letters. I found this poem in a photo I took a couple of weeks ago. Signs of spring were all around, but here was this lone fall leaf in the middle of the sidewalk.



(Note: I don’t know what kind of leaf this is, but maple has five letters!) This Photo Wants to Be a Poem is a weekly feature at Reflections on the Teche. For my National Poetry Project, I’m playing along with the poetry calendar created by Margaret and Molly.

    Boundaries inspire, don’t they? The creative mind will have its way. I love the poem, “brown…bound.”

    It is a maple leaf. Sugar maple.

    You have risen so well to this challenge! I love the play of words within the simplicity of the form–the contrast between green and brown, the almost rhyme and alliteration of brown and bound. Such a delight!
