Ekphrastic poetry

The dreamery inshore

Paweł Markiewicz

A dreamed ship has gone aground

at the most marvelous and dreamiest afterglow.

The mast adverts to orientation of

a tender Morning star.

Seafarers died at midnight

feeling the sea-like fantasy.

The wind wrenched a canvas,

such a Golden Fleece,

to the piratical islands.

The sea is waving in

the rhythm of siren-like

Terpsichorean art.

On the sandbank

a letter in bottle lies with

a sonnet to king Poseidon,

written by a dead sailor.

A rock inshore - like

a custodian of the eternity

is waiting for Apollonian dreams.

A cloud is as If it came from

the meek paradise-heaven,

it manifests a weird-like seriousness

of the moments.
