, Well done to Paul T. Corrigan, whose poem I selected as winner of Rattle Poetry “Artist’s Choice Award” in their recent Ekphrastic Challenge.
A detail from a cottage scene in the Mourne Mountains here in Northern Ireland was the visual prompt for March. I won’t spoil the surprise, but Paul’s poem Wildflowers refers to something quite far removed from the idyllic scene depicted in the landscape (a painting commission I undertook some years ago for an old lady who grew up in such a dwelling.)
I have just realised that Paul has won the Ekphrastic Challenge before, so double congratulations are due.
Oh, and just listen to the recording of his poem!
You can also listen to her recording here.
