Alien Skull

by Treischel

Alien Skull
(A Whitney)

Big surprise,
alien skull.
Secret eyes
are fairly dull.
Hard to spot
this hidden hull.
Why was it left there to rot?

Using a bit of imagination, I see an alien skull here. You'll have to look hard for the eye sockets, then it comes together with a straight line mouth at the bottom.

This poem is a Whitney.
The Whitney poem format was created by Betty Ann Whitney. This is a seven-line versed poem based on Japanese patterns
with a fixed syllable format that contains
3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 4, 7 syllables respectively.

No rhyme scheme is required, but may be incorporated if desired.
For this poem I did use a rhyme scheme. It is:

This photograph was taken by the author himself, of a snowy tree branch in his back yard. It will become one of my Animated Stills collection. Animated stills are poems where inanimate objects take on human, animal, or spirit forms, traits, or articles. They are derived from Photographs I have taken, that have moved me to write a poem associated with it.
