Jane’s Poetry Challenge #28

I’ve been following Jane Dougherty’s poetry challenge with the intent to join in, but time always seems to get away from me. Well, guess what? Here I am, ready to participate. Better late than never, I suppose.

Her weekly challenge (which you can find here) offers 5 challenge words (winding – moonlight – follow – heavily – path) as well as this painting by Edvard Munch:


I played around with the challenge words, trying to piece them together to form a haiku, but failed to use the painting as inspiration:

Rain falls heavily
I follow the winding path
In search of moonlight

When I gave up on writing a Haiku, I came up with this:

He watches
Always standing at the gate
A silent ghost in the moonlight

No escape
I gaze out the window
A heavily wooded forest surrounds me

He beckons
Spellbound, I follow the ghostly shape
Down a winding path that leads to nowhere
