Ekphrastic Challenge: K Dulai

You know, in the beginning there was woman and she made stones

from sand. And taking water

for bone, sculpted more of herself, the gift of life emerging tenderly from her sinewy hands


There has been talk of fire, but with her face and her

face and her face once more there was the sky,

its tides the refractions of an empyrean sea

Her last gift the moon, carved from the arches of her feet,  

forever perambulates by our side

Bio: K Dulai lives in the Bay Area.  Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Pretty Owl Poetry, The Eastern Iowa Review, and Marias at Sampaguitas.  She is a current resident of the Pink Plastic House Online Residency.
