Wish Tableau

My photograph “Wish” was published in print, and online in the The Blue Hour Anthology, 3rd Volume, last year


By Christopher Rupley


I wish I could wish

like we did as kids,

fighting over weeds,

making sure the gusts

of wind from our mouths

removed every strand

(The form is called Tableau, and the structure is: 6 lines, 5 beats per line with no set rhyme scheme, unless that tickles your fancy, and the title has to include the work Tableau, simply because, ‘Tableau’ means picture.
