Katrina Morrison of Oklahoma is our host today for Ethicalela.com’s November Open Write, Day 5. She challenges us to write Ekphrastic Poetry, or poems about pieces of art. I chose a painting my father recently gave me by Margaret Keane, famous for her Big Eyes paintings (there’s a movie, too). This one is entitled After the Storm. Special thanks to Two Writing Teachers, too, for giving writers space to share through Slice of Life.
Arkphrastic pairs of every kind must have felt fearful relief when the door opened after the great flood a lone dove fluffs its feathers we're finally here! under the rainbow hope painted in the heavens for fruitful futures elephants trumpet the platformed walk: arrival! just look at those eyes!
