It's #TankaTuesday and author Colleen Chesebro invites us to write an Exphrastic poem, using as inspiration, the 1816 painting by John Constable, entitled Wivenhoe Park, Essex.
My tanka poem reflects on a small bridge that links the university grounds with the pastoral fields. When I saw the painting, my attention went immediately to that simple structure.
If I were a student at the University of Essex (the building in the background), I would surely cross that bridge. How about you? Do you find it enticing as well?
