Bare earth rose: buckled,
eroded craggy outcrops
on the horizon,
exposed to a breathless sky
and Aurora’s lotus sun.

‘Cracked Open’ by Ally Saunders
My response to Tuesday Poetics: Ally Saunders – A Closer Look
This week Mish is hosting Poetics and has a guest: Ally Saunders, an artist from Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. Ally is one of the fine artists featured in Mish’s previous poetic prompt, New Beginnings, and agreed to tell us a little more about herself in an interview with Mish, which you can read on the dVerse website, and to share her work to stir our poetic muses.
Our prompt today is to take a closer look at Ally’s collection featured in the post OR from her website. Mish wants us to within ourselves, find our own interpretation and write a poem. When using an image of Ally’s work, we must remember to credit it properly with her name and a link to her website, allyart.ca. I chose a colourful piece entitled ‘Cracked Open’, which links to yesterday’s Quadrille prompt – dawn.
