Nothing Left to Say

Prompt by K. Hartless’ Petite Pen Ekphrasis – Ron Hicks’ artwork

Words are a luxury
and I am a spendthrift
except for this moment
tight-throated and numb
I marvel at my poverty.

    Indeed. The metaphor you extend in less than 30 words is wise and speaks so well to this painting. The poverty of words, such a truthful look at this moment. Wonderful brevity. Thank you so much for writing with me.
