Day 6 Ekphrastic Challenge, My Poem, Remember

Yesterday and today: Merril's historical musings

Inspired by GK6, “City Painting”


Remember the night sky, that night—
remember that night–
when the sky was filled with swirls of ancient light,
remember that ancient light spiraling,
like nautilus shells floating in a sunset sea,
remember the spirals’ colors reflected—gold, silver, blue, red–
a painting in the river,
remember the river,
with its upside-down world of buildings and light—
remember that light, that night, the colors
that night when we were in love–

I am once again participating in Paul Brookes’ April Ekphrastic Challenge. Each day, I will post my poem(s) here. You can see the art and read the other responses by going to Paul’s site here.

The artists are Gaynor Kane, John Phandal Law, and Anjum Wasim Dar. Thank you for your wonderful  and inspiring art!
