Kit Kelen - ekphrastics - Antonio Muňos Degrain's 'lavendarias', 1903


Antonio Muňos Degrain's 'lavendarias', 1903

they work with light, bend to it
overhung with foliage

flowers in the hair
just coiffed

ground made mud
but as if iron

the basket is empty
one cannot hear the chatter

the past has lost its purpose
then here is the evocation of nature

among the ruins
hands set to

all will be redeemed

  1. I think the poem works on its own without the image.
