Cosmic dust- an ekphrasis

on
Cosmic dust’- my artwork featuring acrylic fluid art and spray painting that forms the base of the poem.

Touch this
Dark melancholy,
With those pale
Fingertips.
Whisper the words
Of silence,
With your
Sanguine ruby lips.

Bring colour
To the darkness,
Greens, yellows,
Reds and strands.
Touch this void
Of vacuum,
With your
Gentle, healing hands.

And in your eyes
Hold the stars,
But, there’s no need
To rehearse.
Let’s fall and rise
Like cosmic dust,
Cause we’re the universe.

  2. I love the pairing of the poetry and image. They create a wonderfully binary star solar system together.

    The entire poem is gorgeous but the first stanza is my favorite. Just beautifully crafted.
    Love ❤️ Joni
