A SHORT POEM ABOUT MANY THINGS
—from Ekphrastic Challenge
April 2021, Artist’s Choice
Comment from the artist, Jojo: “‘A Short Poem About Many Things’ resonated with me. It is succinct, yet beautifully philosophical. For me, this poem picks up on a deeper, contemplative feeling that I’d hoped my artwork conveyed, in spite of its initial mathematical appearance. The poem gently examines, and finds evidences of the artist beyond the geometry, the interplay between what is seen and what can be inferred.”
