On Becoming a Point of Light

point of light s

My poem, “On Becoming a Point of Light”, inspired by Guido Reni’s painting, “Saint Joseph with the Infant Jesus”, is one of ten responses posted at The Ekphrastic Review.  You can read it here. Thanks once again to Lorette C. Luzajic for featuring my work.

We haven’t quite fitted ourselves into the New Year yet, but Nina and I are going to start posting again after our 2018 break.  I don’t seem to be ready to leave the circles yet, being unsure of what direction I want to go.  I feel like I need to start all over again, and beginnings are always difficult for me.  So there may be some aimless wandering first, or maybe for quite awhile.  As Yogi Berra said wisely, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

Happy New Year!

    I guess the best thing we can do is to just keep showing up everyday and the answers will come. I too am at a fork in the road, I like Yogi’s quote. Both words and art are inspiring.

    I found this new year a turning point for me also. I’m feeling a stalemate in my photography. Winter weather has made me lie low and hibernate. Love the close-up of your piece. It looks like a transformation from dark wings to those of light ascending. Lovely colors. Happy to see you back, Kerfe. 🙂

      Thanks Olga, I’m happy to be back. Last year was tough for many people I know. It’s good to have a new starting point, even if we’re not sure where we’re going. I’m glad you saw the wings!

    Well done, Kerfe.
    I imagine the voice in your poem as coming from either one of them.

    The wings on your circle are fitting, as an angel appears to be leading Mary in the lower right background of the painting.

      Thanks Ken. There’s a lot going on in that painting. And the bonds between parents and children are universal. I also like that Joseph is not only the patron saint of families, but of immigrants and working people. My grandfather (descended, as we all were, from immigrants) was a carpenter too.
