Weaving Web – April Ekphrastic Challenge

Reticulation by Kerfe Roig

Web of history and fate
Lines of mystery and weight

Web of lines and knots
Weave of shine and moonshots

Web of weave and thread
Pattern of belief and dread

Web of pattern and flow
Chance to learn and grow

Web of chance and create
Rhythm to dance and elate

Web of rhythm and beat
Sound of drum and feet

Web of sound and light
Connection to ground and flight

Web of illusion
History and vision


I’m very pleased with finally finding a subject that led to me being able to repeat the form I invented for the poem Moonsea from the first ekphrastic challenge I participated in. 

Edit September 2nd

As I sit struggling with finding the right form for one of my writing assignments in class I decided to share this to remind myself that not only can I find the right form, I can invent one if no other seems suitable.

To see all art and read all poems for today go to The Wombwell Rainbow.

Also shared to Open Link Night at dVerse.

    1. I think we are both the spider and the fly, we make the web we then feel trapped in. From another perspective we sometimes are the spider that weaves a web for others and sometimes we are a fly caught in a web made by others. This could turn into a very long philosophical reply, so I’ll stop myself there. 😆
