Suggested prompt...
Offer a haiku for a crane.
Haiku is a poem consisting of three lines of 5-7-5 syllables each.
(Reminder that all prompts are just suggestions,
if you find another kind of poem or a story is inspired
by this image do not hesitate to offer your creativity that way.)


Rippling through the air
bird of flight moves with intent
perch awaits descent.


One week after the photo or picture is posted I will pick one offering to put beneath the image. This is a way of celebrating exceptional creativity. Any and all posts are available for your creative mind to make an offering at any time (even ones where a writing has been placed on the front page like this one). If you are new here and want to offer to every image here, feel free. We are writers, WRITE! If this is your exceptional writing posted here on the Front Page Pictures, Poetry & Prose invites you to include the Exceptional Writing Award Button on your blog. Visit the Exceptional Writing Award post for the details and the button to download.

Ack, I cannae resist haiku!

So, here goes:

My, my, Mister Crane,
I can't help but admire
The size of your soul.

I saw him standing there
So still and unaware of my presence
Because he was not real

This isn't my best...but I shall shre the reason why on my blog. You're sure to giggle!

Flying crane above
Don't drop your stinkin' feces
On my freshly washed car

oops, last line should be changed!

Flying crane above
Don't drop your stinkin' feces...
My freshly washed car!

Soaring high above
Wings flapping to reach new heights
Peeking at heaven

Crane's Roost is flooded
Fly away and bring back news
Of happier days...

Grain fields beckon me,
North to south and back again.
Why? I do not know.
