The NaPoWriMo prompt for Day 6 asked us to be a voice from inside Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights”.  Although I did a voice from outside the painting last year–On Seeing Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights” –for NaPoWriMo, I couldn’t write anything from inside of it that didn’t seem too depressing for me today.  So I chose another piece of Bosch’s for my Ekphrastic review.

I found the drawing above titled in 2 ways–The Trees Have Ears and the Field Has Eyes and The Hearing Forest and the Seeing Field. Both are true.

the eyes talk–
have you heard them?
they breathe music
of earth stars–
light opening everything
as if you could fly

breathe music s

And now I’ll visit Joni’s garden
