Nearly a year ago, Spank the Carp held an ekphrastic contest where we were given an image to inspire our poetry. I thought I’d give it a try and while I didn’t win, the editor asked if he could publish the poem in some future edition and that time has come. Pond 64, the August 2021 issue of Spank the Carp is now online, featuring my poem, Koi in a Bucket. Check it out!
