Musings on Toril Fisher

With real toads prompted the writing today with works by artist Toril Fisher. There are elements of Louis Tiffany, and van gogh in the work. Three of the selections were of particular interest.  Often with ekphrastic prompts, I am unable to post the artwork from my aging tablet, so this was up for a few days without the images.  So this begs the question, can the poems have value when not presented with the art? Let me know what you think.

A sky
A line
Horizon
Where blue meets blue
My eye
Floats
Along the gunwale
Vervelles
Gorget
Throat
My body
My armor
My vessel

Stab the heart of me
Centered around the eye
Of Odin, the fletching ripples
Radiates outward
Like the mind
Turning behind

The lives of the forest
The drama of the slopes
The hunter

#Musings on Toril Fisher_barn__6350435813758599168_oBeyond behind the old barn
Which has not smelled the breath of beast
For generations, generated there
The fence wire not yet eaten through
By rust neglect decay
Weedy shrubs, saved from the mower
And the lack of hungry lips
Leap over the wire like stallions
On the endless loam
Or stand in thoughtful repose
Each equally immobile

  1. You make me want to see the artworks, but without them, I am entranced in front of all this motion captured like insects in amber.
