Inspired by AWD10, “Harvest,” and GK10, “Double Rainbow over the Palm House, Botanic Park, Belfast”
A harvest field
turned van Gogh gold in autumn’s slant-light,
a gloomy sky
lightened with chromatic arcing—
reflection, refraction, the clarification by science,
in a tickle, a taste, an expansion of the mind—
heart-touched in mystical reaction,
a response to the stardust we hold within?
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! I am so enjoying the poetic responses to the art, too.
