Today’s challenge at Real Toads is to write a poem inspired by the artwork of Kaoro Kawano. I really liked the image shared at Real Toads, Tree Girl with Woodpeckers. I decided to use the Tanka format. I’m also sharing with d’Verse Poets for their open link.
woodpecker flits by
landing on the old oak tree
bugs beneath protective bark
a flash of wings through the sky
