SPECIAL CHALLENGE

By the 1st of each month I will be issuing a new image as a Special Challenge. I love poetry written in response to/inspired by photographs, images and works of art, so invite you to let your imaginations roam free here. Please submit your poem by the 20th of the month it corresponds to.
