Growing Tableau – Photo Challenge #169

Jean-Daniel Beley

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Dark and Late” by Catherine Abbey Hodges: scintillating, leap, carries, each, flagrant, nonchalant, end, late, nights, spill, way, dawns  

Ways to grow a child
A great leap of faith
Support him at nights
Scintillating sun
Flagrant breach of rules
And nonchalant shrug

Spill him with love
He will grow for sure
Any way he could
Branched with all skills
Each skill so different
Others come out late*

* The Tableau, a poetry form created by Emily Romano in October of 2008, consists of one or more verses, each having six lines. Each line should have five beats. There is no set rhyme scheme, although rhyme may be present. The title should contain the word tableau.

Since the dictionary states the word tableau means picture or representation, the poem should reflect this. A picture should come to mind as the poem is read.
