Gift Bag

in a sheer organza bag
with an embroidered half moon
the sound of the kneeling sea
repeating your name

For Imaginary Gardens where the prompt is about spontaneous Tonal impressions. The painting is Moonrise, Beaumaris by Clarice Beckett.

  1. I really love this. The kneeling sea, in particular. You’ve managed to create a very complete tonal effect in so few words, each contributing to the visual image of that gauzy bag full of sea–really really well done. I also find the form very interesting and effective, so thanks for introducing me to it, and thanks for joining us with such a well-crafted offering.

  2. I love the sound in a bag! I look at objects on my shelves and recall the moment and the person–as if the object called the name. It is a mood I enter, and I feel it here with the sea kneeling to honor the presence.
