"Blue Lapis Sea" - poem/photo by Cristina M. R. Norcross (Aquinnah, Martha's Vineyard)

Aquinnah Cliffs, Martha's Vineyard

Blue Lapis Sea

Within the chest
is a wide, blue lapis sea.
The ribcage breaks open –
dancers leap out,
spinning in unison.
The thump, thump, thump
of a hand on the drum –
the only way out
is in.

Sharing another offering of poetry and art from my ekphrastic project, Postcards from the Eternal, currently-in-progress.  I have been creating this fusion of photography and poetry for the past 3 years.  I often give these postcards away, as gifts, and donate bulk copies of cards to non-profits and charities.  A selection of these cards are also available online at Fine Art America and at my local indie bookstore, Books & Co. (Oconomowoc, WI).
