(more) blue

blue ocean grid s

we begin
as vessels, empty,
all this space
waiting to
find the right oceans—ancient
echoes wandering–

 all-that-is
transformed into an
azure song,
composed from
whispers of traces—spirals
mirroring the sea

Color BLock Blue Story by Beverly Dyer

A shadorma duo for Colleen’s #TankaTuesday poet’s choice of words.  The art inspiration is via Mish at dVerse, who introduced us to artist Beverly Dyer, and asked for an ekphrastic response to one of her paintings.  I chose her grid, “Blue Story”, above, and did my own grid to match with pieces of ocean and sky.

The poem was also inspired by Joni Mitchell.

  1. Kerfe, you knocked me over with this. I didn’t look too far in the galleries to find the bird that trilled and didn’t see the blue squares. The reality of you finding some of your favored squares in one of Beverly’s galleries, recreating it with your own, and writing beautiful dao poetry is so cool. Then you give us dessert of Joni Mitchell’s Blue. I think this is as good as it gets. Wonderful!
