Road to Tranquility

Painting-Fay Collins

Hey all! I’m back with my first ekphrastic poem, titled “Road to Tranquility”. Enjoy!

A narrow road leading
To a sea tranquil,
At the heart of which,
A lump floating still.

A narrow road leading
To a realm tranquil,
Where mortals find themselves
Purged of troubles.

A colorful mass floating,
On a humongous sea,
Amidst stretches of blue,
A touch of greenery.

A narrow road leading
To a realm tranquil,
The harmony reflected
In the vibrant blue spilled..

A narrow road leading
To a realm tranquil,
Whose sheer beauty
Shall ne’er be killed.

A colorful mass floating
On a humongous sea,
Final touch to a painting,
That bolsters its beauty.

Ekphrastic poem:
An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning.
