Lunch for Gargoyles, #Paint Chip Poetry, #Tanka, #Silly Poetry

A new leaf, looking

like wilted spinach, dropped down

On a stone gargoyle,

Right on the tip of the tongue,

Salad in dappled sunlight.

(Not the greatest photo collage, but the best I could do with current resources.)

This was for Linda Kruschke’s Paint Chip Poetry challenge. The challenge was to use two of the paint color names from the picture above in a tanka form poem. She said there were extra points if we could use four of the words in a poem that still makes sense and extra points for a silly poem. I have a silly poem — that still makes some kind of sense — with five color names, so I hope it is extra point worthy. πŸ™‚
