Looking Distorted

Playing hide-and-seek
Body image distortion
Finds a poor refuge
Bulimia precursor
When found, no one will find out

This is a little something for Helene’s weekly photo challenge (5-7-2019). It is a Tanka having 5 lines with a syllable count of 5-7-5-7-7 and no rhyme!

  1. Loved how the photo paired with the poem. Also the interplay of hiding one’s body and hiding one’s illness. What is Helene’s weekly photo challenge? Was the poem ekphrastic as well as a Tanka? 🙂


        1. It happens to me too sometimes. Thank you. I hope you will enjoy reading the roundup entries. 🙂


    1. I didn’t intend it to be ekphrastic but I suppose it could be interpreted that way if you squint really hard. Helene left a link in her reply and I added the link in my post… An oversight since I was writing the post at midnight and was a tad exhausted…
