January Ekphrastic Challenge, Day 4

For Paul Brookes’ Special January Ekphrastic Challenge, Day 4, I’ve responded to all three pieces of art.


Ominous clouds gather—
shadows obscure the light,

leaving the world
a tangle of black and blue aches

And after the storm,
amidst the chaos,
the rebuilding begins—

we soar joyfully, reborn amongst flowers,
in colors never before seen.

  1. Merrill, I’m imagining the array of colours born after the storm! Wonderful post and it starts with the word which used to be one of my favourites – ‘ ominous’! How could I not read on?!😀
