Postcardia-cum-Poetica #47

Created from AvantCard’s reproduction of Valery Segodnya’s World Press 1st prize photography. This taken from ‘Black Days of Ukraine’. 

The image won my heart in its intersection of bleakness and hope when it arrived in a handful of postcards via a friend. I’ve thought about it so many times but it hasn’t been the card I’ve pulled it. 

Until today. 

I wanted to create a poem that reflected my original reactions of bleak and hope. While not sunflowers, the fact I could randomly pull fragments with gardening references – #enoughsaid! Words from Elyora.

THE HARVEST 

I wove a cocoon of exile

Tensile silks of sadness

Lost in disappearing

Neptune’s daughter drowning

within herself 

Until I walked your fields

Unraveled myself in your arms

Followed your star

As you ignited my light

Neptune’s daughter now

incandescent.

This week’s prompt:The Star. Next week’s prompt: 9 of Pentacles.
