The germ suspended

by saracomito

Thank you to Bending Genres for publishing my ekphrastic piece, The germ suspended. This poem grew from a workshop at the Bending Genres Synergia Ranch retreat this spring in beautiful New Mexico. Thank you, Meg Tuite and Robert Vaughan. Such great friends and mentors.

If you enjoy this piece, afterwards you can view the “germ” of inspiration in the painting “Elective Affinities” and read about Rene Magritte’s very different interpretation of his own work.
