Submitted for Sunday Photo Fiction

The Assignment: The idea of Photo Fiction is write a story of around 100-200 words (which is also called Flash Fiction) based on a photo as a prompt. In this particular photo fiction, the story must be based on the photo below.  Today I am going to try a Triolet Poem. A Triolet is a poem of fixed rhythmical form, with repeated lines. It is made up of eight lines with a set rhyming scheme. A Triolet consists of eight lines, the rhyming scheme is AB, aA, abAB

 Niagara The Great and Powerful

Powerful water flowing freely, crashing down

A spectacle of nature at its best

People visit from every city, every town

Powerful water flowing freely, crashing down

Your great beauty brings smiles, never a frown

Anticipating your power as you crest

Powerful water flowing freely, crashing down

A spectacle of nature at its best

    This is a great poem about a place I live nearby and don’t go to often. We often forget how grand it is when we are so close to it and see all the tourist stuff.

    You captured Niagara Falls pretty accurately. I’ve been there a number of times and the site never fails to elicit an awed response from me or those who have visited with me.
