echinodermata iii

w/in autumnal winds,

the leaves who wish to flee

 beneath the branches of

their tree release them

-selves to, downward,

fall & meld into a teeming

deep of briny bluefish rise

to meet them, making

contact(s) as reflected

    The poem, echinodermata iii, exemplifies serialization and simulated ekphrasis; ekphrasis is writing or creating that has been inspired by another work of art or image; in recovering from my final stroke, the ensuing brain surgeries and the infiltration of my system by spinal meningitis, without even realizing it, I sometimes required physical inspiration, to kick start my creative communication; the weird thing was, at the time, I was able to thrive as a poet, writing the best words, in their best order; however, in most of my other written pursuits and academics, I barely was able to make things happen. The poem was inspired by MC Escher.
