Near

The last poem from the January prompt is by Kerfe and includes artwork also inspired by the prompt. As often with her posts, the two are a pair. Enjoy!

method two madness

near stitched s

The end is
calling—ice spiders
weaving nets
blanketing
the unrelenting blueness
with crystal cold

Stripped down
to sheer form, chanting
syllables
bleak, bitter–
ancient songs of Boreas–
untranslatable

Gods become
disassembled bits
and pieces,
illusive
fabrications floating on
seas of sinking air

like final
notes of silence pitched
into the
void, cutting
holes with each unspoken word,
unthreading needles

Failing to
transform, to be borne
or reborn–
the years spin,
contracting—the lines
fall, disconnected

A poetic response to the January prompt at Myths of the Mirror, above.  Somehow working in blues always leads me to stitching…in this case I painted two circles and cut the smaller one up and stitched it on top of the larger one.

  9. How marvelous! Diana it’s exciting that your prompt has also inspired art. How cool! (Ugh… really, no pun intended. Much as I like puns, I don’t like snow.) Hugs on the wing!
