#TANKATUESDAY Weekly #POETRYCHALLENGE #252 @SyllabicPoetry @ColleenChesebro #PhotoPrompt #Tanka

Hi everyone! Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge, which asks for a verse using metaphor and allegory from a photo supplied by Lisa – The Versesmith.

You can find Colleen’s post HERE.

I have chosen a Tanka, which has the following syllable format: 5-7-5-7-7

Purple aster with butterfly

Growing pains of life
No safe perch when you’re not you
Stop!—smell the flowers
Make time for vulnerable
Self-reflection transforms us
