(Inspired by all four images)
Fractured blues and greens,
fractals formed in light-shifts
of ebony wings,
in circling seasons,
the stars sing
in their passing,
violet to red, they string
threads of life and death,
the visions of crow,
life-melodies, timeless dust,
For Day 22 of Paul Brookes’ Poetry Month Ekphrastic Challenge, my poem today was not written for Earth Day, but it fits. You can see the artwork and read the other poems here.
Spotted yours again. ‘fractals’.
Love your use of the crow fluttering through the poem.
I picked out yours, too. 🙂
We each have our house style 🙂
We do– variations on birds, stars, water, and a bit of apocalyptic murmurs thrown in for good measure. 😉
We have the most important things covered 🙂
You really have fused those images
Thank you very much, Derrick.
Reblogged this on The Wombwell Rainbow.
Thank you, Paul!
You are in a colourful mood today! This is lovely and I do think it fits with Earth Day, too 🙂
I actually wrote this one a couple days ago, but you know I love color! 🙂
Ah well… You still shared it on the same day 😉
Yes. I know you didn’t know that, of course.
I appreciate the comment! 🙂
You know I can never resist a crow. This very much has the rhythm of stitching or weaving. (K)
I hadn’t thought of stitching or weaving, but it is sort of a Kerfe-style poem in a Merril way, and it does include “threads,” so I can see it.
Gorgeous sound echoes
Thank you so much, Patricia!
I like how the poem weave the images together to form a coherent whole.
Thank you very much, Liz. I’m pleased you think so.
You’re welcome, Merril.
Crazy neat poem, Merril….
No matter what one says or thinks; “timeless dust,”
IS our everything.
Thank you so much, Resa! It truly is! 😊
