November Ekphrastic challenge: Day 4

Jane Dougherty Writes

Yes, I know, most eyes are rivetted on the vote count, but still, the ekphrastic challenge goes on. Both images, by Marcel Herms (Angry white mouse) and Terry Chipp (Consider the night) are appropriate for this poem.

4MH Angry white mouse (get a life), mixed media on paper, 19,5 x 22,5 cm, 2020

 

Night walkers

Night closes about the timid,
the mouse-hearted,
bird-nervous,
and it pads soft
as the anaesthetist’s rubber soled shoes,
bringing the solace
of silver and silence
to the dear departed.

 

TC4. Considering the night
