Poem: The Emerald Pool

The Emerald Pool - Linda Sutton

The Emerald Pool

It pools so slowly
reaching upward toward earth's sky

A deep source
underneath, needing a place to fly

Consider please
this water, with a so nascent eye,

in its own space,
precious, save it, conscious of why.

The Benicia First Tuesday Poets’ Group and members of Benicia Literary Arts have written ekphrastic poems about paintings from our show, Watercolor - A Happy Medium.

Ekphrastic poems are vivid verbal descriptions of a work of art. Fifteen different poets each came to the aRt Cottage to pick one pieces from each of the 15 artists in the show. We'll be sharing the poetry here on the blog over the next several days - enjoy!
