This poem was created from an ekphrasis exercise in Mima at Middlesbrough. The poem hopes to portray William Tillyer’s The Balcony 7. My interpretation of Tillyer’s painting was inspired by experiences with nature and what emotions may occur. Here is Tillyer’s exhibition, including The Balcony 7, hopefully this will help with the understanding of the poem. William Tillyer’s exhibition
Warm embrace remains,
Immersed in greenery
Stream flowing beyond sight’s reach,
Resting, nature sleeps
Let it be whilst I return to the working day.
