Blue Skies ~ ekphrastic poem

Blue Skies

Beyond a bay of blues layered
with a weight that would pull me under,
a harbor that holds only sadness, lies
a horizon of hope that draws me
from these depths in search of a better day.

This poem is my response to the prompt, Tuesday Poetics: Fay Collins revisited,
from Sarah at dVerse ~ Poets Pub, which offers eight paintings by Fay Collins
for inspiration. I chose Floating Seaweed.

  1. This is incredibly exquisite! The poem in its entirety evokes so much upon reading it, Ken. I especially love; “a horizon of hope that draws me.” ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’
