Here is my Day 22 poem using the napowrimo.net prompt: Write a poem that engages with another art form.
I wrote this poem while looking at the image below (which I drew on April 13th), and listening to a couple of ECM recordings: Dallëndyshe, by the Elina Duni Quartet, and What was said, by Tord Gustavsen with Simin Tander and Jarle Vespestad.
out the brooding grey
into fields of blistered red and black
buffered by amber
formed by tissue and fibre
the wounds of centuries
spoken in sombre chamber tones
in light and lines
etched into flesh
(that is what memory
and history are for)
marking the true centre
in matters of the heart
