I’m thrilled and very excited that my poem “The Way It Happened” has been published in the Ekphrastic Review as a challenge response. It responds to the most recent challenge–a painting by John William Waterhouse, “Hylas and the Nymphs.”
My thanks to editor Lorette C. Luzajic for selecting my poem. Jane Dougherty’s wonderful prose work is right after mine. You can read all the selected works here.
Thank you to special guest editor, artist and poet John Di Leonardo, for selecting my poem, “The Line, The Curve,” as one of the responses to his piece, “Nude Study.” You can read my poem and the rest of the responses here.
My poem, “Explorers,” is published as one of the responses to Bertram Brooker’s “Figures in a Landscape.” My thanks to editor Lorette C. Luzajic for selecting mine, along with all the other excellent responses. You can read them all here–mine is toward the end.
My poem “A Dream” is up in the Ekphrastic Review’s Challenge using the above painting, “The New Bucephalus” by Edgar Ende. My thanks to editor Lorette C. Luzajic. I’m in good company this time with friends Kerfe Roig and Kim Russell. You can read all of the poems here (mine is near the end).
Thank you to editor Lorette C. Luzajic for including my prose poem, “Homefront” for this challenge based on Horace Pippin’s “The Domino Players.” I really like this painting, and his work in general. The Philadelphia Museum of Art has several of his paintings. He lived just outside of Philadelphia in West Chester, PA.
I’m also thrilled that Jane Dougherty’s poem is the first poem you read here.
I’m pleased that my small poem, “In the Balance,” was among those selected as a response to the Vermeer painting “Woman Holding a Balance” for the most recent challenge in the Ekphrastic Review. My thanks to editor Lorette C. Luzajic for choosing my poem, along with such excellent poems and short prose pieces. You can read them all here.
Fin de la Jornada, by Emilio Boggio (Venezuela) 1912.
My flash fiction piece, “Chromatic Scales” was one of those selected by guest editor Janette Schafer for the challenge based on this painting by Emilio Boggio. (I’m not sure if the word for mine is flash fiction, microfiction, or some cross between either of those and a prose poem.) I’m pleased that Kerfe Roig’s poem was also selected. You can read both of ours–and all the other wonderful poems and stories here.
