Wide open spaces make me feel vulnerable
"Senryu (invasion of space)" by Senyai

Wide brimmed sky opens

  Out onto distant vistas  --

I put on my hat



5-7-5 writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
Write a 5-7-5 Poem! This is a poem with only three lines. The catch is there is a strict syllable count. The first line has 5 syllables, second 7, third 5 again.


Author Notes
* As a city girl, I am overwhelmed at first by such wide open spaces. Beautiful as it is, I feel vulnerable. I seek shelter, if only by my hat. Silly me.

* I was puzzled by my feelings and looked it up. This is what I found:

* Kenophobia is an intense, irrational fear of empty or wide-open spaces. Keno - is from the Greek for empty or blank, and phobia - is Greek for fear. The lack of defined borders or physical barriers can cause disorientation and even trigger panic attacks for a person with kenophobia.

* Kenophobia is often confused with agoraphobia, which is a specific fear of going out in public or being in a situation that may be difficult to escape. There is some overlap; for example, both agoraphobia and kenophobia could include a scenario such as swimming in open water. However, agoraphobia may also be triggered in a closed space, such as riding the subway.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
