We are patchwork, we
a constellation of colours
lighting children’s eyes
so many shades and blades of grass
in blue skies, bright or
clouded grey and white
in springtime meadow-light.

April has been extended!
By Paul Brookes of The Wombwell Rainbow. He has hosted a special ekphrastic challenge for the month of April as part of NaPoWriMo2021, and though I didn’t take part, I read and enjoyed many of the responses.
When I learned that today had been renamed April 31 in honour of Kerfe Roig’s wonderful collage ‘Full of Children,’ I felt I must respond. I find ekphrastic poetry very hard, but this artwork really spoke to me. Read more of the responses on Paul’s site.
