Ekphrastic poetry: An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning. Ronald Hignite has composed the perfect descriptions in words to go with his photography. He hails from North Carolina and has traveled the country to find his thoughts collide.
