The Flame in the Center: Ekphrastic Challenge, Day 7

Inspired by Kerfe Roig “Cave” (below)

Protection from the unknown
shadows–chromatic light–reflections
formed from everything—
star-breath sighed,

they fly, butterfly-winged,
repeating patterns, mirroring,

and once again,
through endless time

in the deepest cave of heart and mind,
a center glow, you find
it like a candle flame, illuminating hope–
the dreams the stars sing–

those wondrous things
multi-hued and bright,
prisms of color
glimmering in the night.

For Paul Brookes’ Ekphrastic Challenge. You can see all the art and poems here.

  1. These are the lines that resonate most with me:

    in the deepest cave of heart and mind,
    a center glow, you find
    it like a candle flame, illuminating hope–

    Sometimes that center glow is buried very, very deep, but it’s there.
