peer into darkness
like a river winding
through a canyon
he saw all worlds
we both saw
Ekphrastic poem inspired by the Hana Hamplová: Meditations on Paper exhibit at The Frye Art Museum. I saw it once, alone, and once with a date. We both marveled at the raw eroticism of these photos. No idea if that was the intent.
These photos are a reminder to me of the ephemeral nature of life. Of bodies, words, ideologies. Flesh changes throughout our lives, a constant reminder of change. Once tight it becomes thinner but also softer, revealing new worlds beneath. Discovery always awaits attention.
I recommend this exhibit which ends December 31st. It’s truly beautiful and thought-provoking.
