“Ekphrastic Show”, part deux

I love “part deux”-the 2nd act builds on the first.

I had three visuals in the show, and I contributed an emotional bit of writing, as well:

AMORGOS

In early morning Greek milky Ouzo light,

Stumbling back to her friends,

At a pension too rich for its price.

No key.

One shoe flew to the window

To announce her arrival,

A second followed.

She stood, looking down the road

As the white-washed walls turned

Pink and orange in the early light,

Still hazy in her head.

The azure Mediterranean waves

Reminded her of rhythm,

And rhyme

As she waited with no more shoes.

She was finally allowed

To find her bed as the sky

Went from magenta to that early-morning light silver blue.
