Poem up at the Ekphrastic Review

My poem Upon a Time, inspired by “Spinning Flax”, by Maria Martinetti, below, is posted on The Ekphrastic Review today.


hushabye, don’t cry–
all the pretty horses fly
shining starborne dreams

You can read the entire poem here.

My thanks once again to editor Lorette C. Luzajic for supporting my work and the interaction between the visual and written arts.

    “She has grown into her own intersection of warp and weft, following the stitches of a tapestry that began long ago…”

    I love the collage and the whole poem, but especially this:
    “She has grown into her own intersection of warp and weft, following the stitches of a tapestry that began long ago and continues both forward and backward, inside and out, upside and down, holding hands with itself and softly singing.” You are a woman who runs with the wolves ❤

    I love that story, the sparse telling of it and the spark in the untaling of it, the power and poise of the woman who doesn’t need a fairy tale narrative.
