this is one of my favorite pieces by artist Sarah J. Curtiss. An ekphrastic poem I have written for it follows. If you’d like to listen to it,
blue

lost in the sway of
umpha-tumpha
umpha-tumpha
umpha-tumpha-tat

orion is electrified
the stars never felt so good sizzling into my pores
this twilight solitude is sanctuary

i hitch a ride on the beat
it carries me to that threshold
between sea and celestial
between green and violet
where I fade into the rhapsody

beyond self
beyond material
beyond the blood and the breath

beat
in accordance
tune
to the music

of the ultimate
the sacred
the spiraling deep inside
to the realm
of divinity
