Tongue Ekphrastic

jade tongue licks the sky
dark flame in a pale landscape
ravenous for light

Tongue of Lucifer (Rudi van de Wint)

My response to Carpe Diem #1235 Tongue of Lucifer

Chevrefeuille’s latest prompt in the Modern Art Month is a sculpture on one of the dikes near to where he lives: it’s ‘Tongue of Lucifer’ by the Dutch artist Rudi van de Wint, and has been the topic of much conversation.

    1. You made me chuckle, Charley, and I had to look at the image again. I’ve never seen a suppository that shape – but then I haven’t come across many of them! All I saw was one of those huge jelly sweet tongues they use to sell in the sweet shop, along with lips made out of jelly. The lips were fruity and the tongues were tangy. 🙂
