Timeless

Title Unspecified, by Jean “Hans” Arp (French, b. German), 1950s.

Timeless

Folded
arms, virgin breasts–
molded,

observed
by artful eye.
Preserved

in clay,
she defies time’s
decay.

Ryan Stone

Written for the 20 poem challenge at Ekphrastic , September 2016.

  1. I love this because I remember this figure from art history. Your description is very apt. The female form so simplistic, but art across the ages and it still speaks to completely different people than it first did or has before.
