Thank you to Lorette from The Ekphrastic Review for publishing my poem ‘The Ghost of Me’. The poem is based on this wonderful painting called ‘Sevilla en Fiestas’ by Gustavo Bacarisas (Spain) 1915.

So, Constance … what’s a cenku? Well, I’m glad you asked! You see, a cenku is a cento in haiku format.
cento: a poem made by combining lines from different existing poems
haiku: a short poem containing two images that have a relationship
moving in and out
crossing fluid boundaries
Written for Susi Bocks’s IWH Weekly Haiku/Senryu Challenge #18.
