Smile!

Spread arms wide and wave!

Tiny speck of a human

wee soul lost in landscape

a lone tree stands witness

grounded in inhospitable rock

birds circle in flight overhead

while the ridiculousness of aliveness

surges through the limbs of this

powerfully sentient being who is

posed and willing to hug the world


This month of October I am thoroughly enjoying a tour of master paintings, and using them as writing prompts for poetry. It is good fun. A complete explanation of Ekphrastic poetry, and the paintings featured, starts here with the talented Instructor John Brantingham, a local English professor. Join me!
