Flotilla on white - for Ben

Had a lovely time at Jll Teague's workshop on 'Ekphrasic Writing'  - the response in one art form to another - yesterday morning.  Here is my 'responsive' poem to the exhibition:

Flotilla on white - for Ben

Driftwood and wire
draws the eye to bathe,
invites the hands to touch..

Flotsam and jetsam of my life
saved and savoured,
precious, yet unremarkable
to the unseeing eye..

Floating, light, resilient -
what fragile barque to offer you
to set your life's sail?
