Frozen – a ekphrastic poem

dverse poetry 5.22.19
art work by mary frances


Dull grey, chilled ground
decay halts in frozen moments
Mother Earth slumbers
in her cocoon of
leaves made brittle with frost
colors retreat from the cold
still the Mother waits,
with endless patience
for the sun’s return
when the world thaws,
colors flow back to the land
and the dreamer awakens
