Day 3: January Ekphrastic Challenge

Yesterday and today: Merril's historical musings

Responding to all of today’s artwork for Paul Brookes’ Challenge, January 9, 2021, Day 3.

Beckoning

After the bang that breaks the silence
of nonexistence, of before all-time–
a closed fist opens, letting out light
in a rush of song; sailing sirens, the stars
attract, beckoning us and what was becomes ever-after,

never looking back,

we seek the end of darkness, beyond horizons
and the silvered-humming of the moon—
finding patterns in vast arrays, finding ourselves there—
made of stars, caught by time–and
timeless.
