Ekphrastic

Ekphrastic: 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. https://www.poetryfoundation.org/learn/glossary-terms/ekphrasis

Moonlight glows upon the soft waves
as a gentle breeze blows
Still and quiet
Calm and peaceful
Light upon the ripples moving closer
