Day 23 Ekphrastic Challenge

Yesterday and today: Merril's historical musings


Another day, another view–
the same trees with slight slant cast
different shadows
in this glance–
now cock-eyed robin
with sunset breast on a bough
where pink blooms dance—
only yesterday it was white
and my hair brown, overnight
shadows scant-seen slowly
slope, a slight slant light,
a transitory smile.

For Paul Brooke’s Poetry Month Ekphrastic Challenge. You can see the artwork read the other poems here.
