NEW FEATURE: SYNERGY: CALLING ALL WRITERS WHO ARE PHOTOGRAPHERS I will feature your work photos and writing individually on the Wombwell Rainbow. A special feature for you alone. Please DM/message me if you’re interested. Photo essays are great, poems should accompany one of your images that inspired them. Poems within the photos are also great, such a haiku, and so forth. Any theme you choose, at the moment. May get more specific as time goes by. Experimental work most welcome. Our seventh Synergy is from Spriha Kant.

A monstrous shadow by Spriha Kant synergy

A MONSTROUS SHADOW:
You have fallen like an autumn leaf from my life though
but I am still living in your monstrous shadow.
The words
that used to fling out of your tongue like a crow still croak like frogs in my psyche.
The stains
with which your hammer-fists stroked my skin still burn in ache.
The manacles
that you used to confine my spirit still make me hobble and stumble.
You have fallen like an autumn leaf from my life though
but I am still living in your monstrous shadow.

-Spriha Kant
