Poem up at the Ekphrastic Review

My prose poem Passing, inspired by “After the Storm”, by Istvan Farkas, below, is posted on The Ekphrastic Review today.


It was before and then it was after. The ground was reflected in the monochromatic sky, rising in the disappearing drizzle, held momentarily by the scattered light. The canopy could not be breached, not even by the unveiling here and now.

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.

    Congratulations: you’ve captured the mystery of the painting so well. I tried to respond with poetry but nothing very inspiring came out so I didn’t submit in the end.

      Thanks Ingrid. I haven’t submitted in awhile, but this painting spoke to me. Of course I often submit and don’t get published as well…I think Lorette gets many many submissions these days. It’s hard not to get discouraged by rejections, but there are lots of factors besides the quality of the work involved in publishing.

    Beautiful and Intriguing. Still having trouble accessing the link but it’s a problem my end I think. It usually opens eventually.

    Considering the last years of his life, and how it ended, your words ring with a truth that should not be forgotten.
