Romance – Tanaga


Romance - Tanaga

I was invited by Elizabeth from Tea and Paper to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. Elizabeth posts photos, poems, artsy stuff and other things on her lovely blog. Please drop by and check it out.


I thought that for my fifth and final post for this challenge, I would keep things on the lighter side. I thought that romance and a rose fit well together. The poem is a Tanaga, which is a Philippine poetry form, four lines in length, seven syllables each line, first two lines rhyme and the second two rhyme.

My nomination for today’s post is Neha, from Forgotten Meadows.

The End of the Line


Old train

I’ve reached the end of the line

Say goodbye to space and time

Ran out of gas, broken down

I’m off to meet the renown

The above photo was taken close to my house. I thought it was a bit odd for an old non-working locomotive to be hiding away in the trees. The poem is another Tanaga.

I would like to nominate Audrey, from Oldest Daughter Red Headed Sister to participate in this challenge. Audrey finds inspiration in anything and everything.
