I love the poem titled “The Solitary Reaper” penned by William Wordsworth and the image prompt for this week reminded me of that poem. 😊 I wanted to share with you my take on the poem. Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.


dusk in shades of pink
birds whirling in unison
waiting for her love
the solitary reaper
sang her “melancholy strain”
