Editor’s Note: It is really wonderful to have one of my paintings help inspire an ekphrasitic poem by Dr. Deodhar, even though in actuality it was through time and space–since the poem was written years ago in India. So maybe it was the other way around?? Nevertheless, Dr. Angelee Deodhar’s poem and my painting really do belong together. The issues of the increasing difficulties with the environment need us to act more than ever.
