MyTake-COLLEEN’S 2020 WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 195 #EKPHRASTIC #PHOTOPROMPT

Wow… Ekphrastic PhotoPrompt…. What is anEkphrastic poem? It explores art by describing it. (At least that is my interpretation.)

Mushrooms can be beautiful and grow in unexpected places. This mushroom has a white stem and an orange flat top. The mist frames the photo. Is this mushroom eatable, or is it poisonous. If one is allergic, all mushrooms are poisonous, therefore, sometimes, very hard to appreciate their existence.

The mushroom displays
Hidden properties, mists of
Anaphylaxis

Which One Do I Choose?

 

Dazed
Doubtful
Dubious
Disputable
Changeable answers
Bewildering choices
Apprehension to decide
Grasping for clarification
Noncommittal and very cautious
Precarious decisions await us!
Time to decide!
