The ship is an omen…Flee flee!
She runs swiftly, so light and free;
Leaves rain gaily upon her body.
Awake…awake from your reverie!
An ekphrastic poem exercise of a painting by Annie Leibovitz titled “Pocahontas”, for the film “Dreams Run Free”
(Ekphrasis: writing that comments upon another art form, for instance a poem about a photograph or a novel about a film.)
