Backlit by counterpoints
your face a harmony
fingers merge with black
release major chords of red
and mournful minors, grey
They shift between darkness
and lightness of plus, shades
and me, until a sunbeam, dotted
of a melody, breaks through.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Poems in April Day 28: Photographic Images Reimagined, also linked to Poets United Poetry Pantry
Margaret presents us with a range of images that are free to download and use. She has also linked the sites, so we are free to choose for ourselves.
She offers us three options: to use an ekphrastic approach by closely observing the photo and writing vivid description; to create a narrative beyond the frame and reimagine the photo in a story; or interpret or impart an impression of sentiment or promise from the photo.
