Two very talented poets at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads came up with a new kind of picture prompt for the first Sunday of 2013.
Hedgewitch suggested and Kerry accepted the concept of ekphrasis, "the graphic, often dramatic, description of a visual work of art..."
To this end, Kerry chose for us the stylized work of Dutch surrealist M.C. Escher, offered us some examples of his work, and provided a link to the Escher gallery at wikipaintings.
Although unable to manage anything dramatic, I wrote the following rhyme about Escher's work entitled "Castle in the Air":
we dream castles in the air
try to reach them
when suddenly our walking speed
becomes a tortoise for a steed
