Subtlety ~ ekphrastic poem



Thoughts that seek to sort a tangled web
or follow a scent to its conclusion
have no beginning and no end,
hold no guarantee of entry. Subtlety
in a furrowed brow will not answer
your questions, posed or unasked,
instead offers confusion
in the complexity it wraps around itself.


This poem is my response to Eugi’s Causerie Weekly Prompt – Mingle,
inspired by the image used in the prompt.
