Ekphrastic Love

EKPHRASTIC LOVE

If
a
picture
is worth a
thousand words, then he
shall borrow all that he can to
describe the beauty he sees while gazing upon her.

In turn, he will lend her his eyes so she can see her
-self as the beauty that she is,
to see her full worth.
Their true love
is give
and
give.

Written for Poetic Bloomings Prompt 344 – Neither a Borrower Nor a Lender Be

For Example…

FOR EXAMPLE…

One
needs
to look
no further
than Walt Wojtanik
for the definition of true
dedication to the art of writing poetry.

Thank you, Walt, for all ways being ready with a word
of encouragement, offering
a prompt to start us,
or a nudge
to write
more
words.

Shared at Poetic Asides

Walt was among my first fans and source of encouragement when I started writing poetry in 2010. He and Marie Good formed “Poetic Bloomings” which was a regular spot for me to get prompts and pointers. Walt’s presence at Poetic Asides (long before I stepped onto the “Street”) has proven to be an example of what it means to let the words flow–both in poetry and in the encouragement of poets. Thank you, Walt!
