Poem: Cyanaen Rocks


Rocks by Lorraine Wells

Cyanaen Rocks

How could water move    

Euripides Ignatius and Plato 

Do not have no way around it 

Dancing rocks bright red corals 

The wind blows high this very day 

day passed night on its way 

Bright blue sky 

Dancing rocks 

Jason sea Odyssey 

Sea is so calm here 

rocks more as soft boulders 

How could they move 

a little in two centuries 

Could the water move 

we through it 

could we move along the Water 

rock stone boulder 

dance in the sea 

We will kiss the lizard king and she

And be well in home

Yes home.

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.
