Inspired by all three images for today.
The beauty of a summer rose
less so, the stark winter landscape
of skeleton trees and washed-out sky–
but there–if you look closely–
my cat is beautiful to me,
your pet pig to you–
love doesn’t make us blind,
it makes us see
the lines on a face are roads
on a map
traveled through places real and imagined,
in monochrome minutes or bright-hued hours,
like a pink bow bobbing in a sea of grey,
a life-preserver tossed to you—catch it.
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!
