Day 3: January Ekphrastic Challenge

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.

  1. Oh, I’ve been missing your posts and this prompt! Noticed your post on twitter.
    I love that fist opening and letting the light go.
    Anyone would think the Oracle had a hand (no pun intended) in this. Did you see what I posted yesterday evening? Just fits this poem.

  2. Oh that was wonderful! I love that you made a puente using all three images. A closed fist opening to let out light is such a beautiful image. We need more open hands, don’t we?
