Day 10, Ekphrastic Challenge

Inspired by OVP10, AB10, and SaraFM10

What If

Let’s call it belief,
tricks of the eyes, like a mirage,
muscle-memory within a bubble
of time—

when the sky flew in
like a scarlet tanager,

and the reflecting-revealing window

or closed–

the world went on,
with puppy insouciance and hipster shrugs,
unconcerned by the colorless roses
in their vases, the clouds
the same grey and the ground.

For Paul Brookes’ Poetry Month Ekphrastic Challenge. You can see all the art and read the poems here.
