Meet Me at the Station

 Tanka Tuesday No. 281

Today's ekphrasic prompt comes from Willow Willer.  My choice of syllabic form is a reverse nonet.

Let's

travel

together,

run off alone,

take the Eurostar.

Meet me at the station,

you know just where I will be,

standing below The Meeting Place

at London St. Pancras Station.

    1. I wrote line 6 first, then decided on the nonet so it would fit in a syllabic poem!

    1. Thank you. The sculpture has an interesting origin, and online photos of its base are amazing.

  4. Oh, this is stunning, Lisa. The sculpture is so interesting. I can imagine the man saying all of this to the woman! 💜

    1. Or perhaps the woman is saying it to the man!

    1. Sort of mysterious, I wonder where they'll go? I didn't look up destinations from that station. We could make up an entire story about the two of them!
