Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
This month, we returned to ekphrastic poems, and Tanita chose our image. I filtered it, but you can see the original here. I was looking at it on my phone, and I couldn’t see what was inside that blue round thing. It just looked like a gaping hole, and the colors made it look like a globe. It was almost like this girl was trying to dive inside the earth.
Then, when I filtered it, the telephone (I think?) inside it was more noticeable. I loved the idea of this little girl stretching up, reaching into the world of technology, hoping to reach a real person. So that’s what I went with. The info provided by the photographer is in another language, and I didn’t read it or translate it, so I just wrote strictly based on how the image itself hit me.
I’m writing this post in advance, since I’m going to be off the grid for a bit. But make sure to see what everyone else has come up with, too! These links will take you to their sites/blogs.
