“Geography lesson,” ekphrastic poem by Dr. Angelee Deodhar, copyright 2017

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.

  5. Wonderful. To me, reading it was like flying on a magic carpet over the theater of Arabian Nights. The images it evoked were a blend of childlike imagination and celestial wonders. The tunes that were ringing in my ears were: “कहाँ ले चले हो, बता दो मुसाफिर, सितारोंसे आगे, ये कैसा जहाँ है”.


  6. Gorgeous! This reminds me of roaming through the markets of Rome. And I agree, the world , our home, is a fragile place; we should “hold it gently”.
