Sorry to butt in folks. The Poetry Foundation defines an ekphrastic poem as follows:
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.
Any such poem without a picture would, in my opinion, be meaningless.
