WOODLAND TIME TRAVEL: Sadje’s #WhatDoYouSee #WDYS Poetry Image Prompt #170

This week Sadje provides us with a digital art image (above) that shows a man standing in front of a square portal that shows a scene from another place. Stairs lead up to this portal. Below lies my contribution to the prompt: 👇👇👇


When they took me out into the woods
With the promise of another world
Dripping off their honeyed lips
A portal to another world
I didn’t believe them to begin with,
Laughing at the sheer incredulity of it
I’d been down the woods hundreds of times
On late night walks
And camping trips
I whispered to myself
“Get a grip”
And there’d been no portal.
Least none that any mere mortal
Could see
The woodlands had transformed
Taken on an animated form
Full of purple; greenish hues
With pink and violet too
Then, in front of me
Atop a series of stony steps
Lay something to behold
A giant cosmic portal
In the shape of a tablet
Bordered by twisting
Winding tree branches
Began to open, unfold
Revealing blue skies & green fields.
I stand in awe for a moment
To take it all in, to steel
Myself for whatever was to come
I should turn and run
But I was rooted to the spot
And couldn’t move.
Hypnotised by this
Strange; beautiful sight
Whirring; blinding
Or rewinding
Then it began
To pull me towards it!

IN A FOG OVER THE HUNCHBACK: Sadje’s #WhatDoYouSee #WDYS Poetry Image Prompt #155

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows the scene of a forest. One can see a couple walking in the distance through the hazy fog. Below lies my contribution:


A thick; hazy fog
Descends upon the forest
Tall: thin & towering trees
Stoop low to greet
The mysterious hunch backed man
And the lady in the red dress
Accompanying him.
She places her hand
Willingly in his.
And they stroll
Deeper into the woods.
To be swallowed up
By the mist.
What will happen the woman?
Will the fog lift?
Where are they going?
We are a long way from Notre Dame
After all!
