listening to the traffic rushing by on a wet road
Hello, all. We have our image prompt today. I have four paintings for your delectation. You may write about one, two, or all four. You may write as if the speaker is aware of the painting, or as if there were no painting.
Settle on what catches your fancy. From here, you can write a ‘response to’ poem, or you can treasure hunt. If you want to treasure hunt, you will need a little more time. Start at the bottom left of a painting and working your way across and up, note down all details. Then ask: What? Where? Whyfore? When? How?
You could decide to have the subject of the painting be metaphorical.
You might want to focus on one detail in the painting and ignore the rest. Perhaps the crumpled doll, or the red wagon, stirs something.
Click on the paintings for a closer view. Enjoy. They are a strange lot, but that’s the fun for me when I pick. The next fun part is when I read your poems. Don’t forget to check last week’s contributions, if you haven’t been back. I’ll try and remember to leave a link, in future.
We shall be visiting our grand-daughter next week, so the blog will be dark. I will, however, have my laptop and will try and keep up with poems and comments. We’ll see how she feels about that. She’s quite techie- oriented, already.
I shall see you this Thursday for Your Poetics Serendipity; Friday for the Poetry Freeforall; and Tuesday, March 5th, for another Poem Tryout. [Yes, I am playing with titles again]
Happy writing, everyone.
