Tranquil Turquoise

Winslow Homer's "Breaking Storm"

Image from: “I Require Art”

Tranquil turquoise

smooth as glass
stretching to meet
shades of gray.

Birds take flight
during the calm
before the storm.

P. Wanken

Written for Margo Roby’s Tuesday Tryouts: Before, During, or After The Storm.


    1. As soon as I saw this painting in my newsfeed on FB, I knew I’d want to capture it for a prompt…I absolutely love it. (And…I absolutely love YOU…thanks for faithfully prompting us each Tuesday! 🙂 )
