NaPoWriMo Day 3


He walks the garden path
Moss, stone, stream
Pauses at the apex of the bridge
Fingers his inro
its lacquered smoothness
Rubs the netsuki
thumb a perfect fit
between the hare’s ears
in silent contemplation
of the turtle’s wisdom


Today I chose the ekphrastic prompt from The Wombwell Rainbow which I discovered via my poetry sister, Merril. Three beautiful artworks were displayed and I chose this drawing of a netsuki by Kerfe Roig, another poetry sister, as my prompt.
