Ekphrastic Poem 4



Smeetha Bhowmik’s delightful poem with philosophical indents is the next poem to be presented here in our series of poems on women solidarity written in response to a picture prompt by members of the Womaninc poetry group.

Under a blue sky
On golden land,
Arm in arm we
The sky in
Our hands!

Looking up in
Looking up in joy,
We turned to each
other –
Li’l earthen toys!

For what else
Are we
But earthen lamps

Lit from inside….

A rare alloy.

Smeetha Bhowmik is an artist and poet based in Mumbai. Her work has been a part of art exhibitions across the globe.
