8:46 a.m. — Atlanta
Hello, everyone. We have snow! Not much and it will be gone by noon, but we can look out on blanketed roofs and lawns. Unfortunately, we have visitors in the form of my Uncle and Aunt (the visit and they are not an unfortunate event, only the going out and doing something), which means going out in the cold and wet. Ick.
In the last few days, an artist friend and the art group I follow on Facebook have posted three paintings with particularly affecting colour. I’m not sure what I want you to do with them, but I’d like it to involve light.
You can choose one and write a straightforward response to what you see.
You can choose one and write a poem based on the emotion it evokes.
You can mix the paintings and take details from each to create your poem.
You can pick a single detail to use as your spark.
Whichever and however you respond, try to have a quality of light in the poem — it might involve colour, but doesn’t have to.
I will see you Thursday for links and things; Friday for the week’s roundup of prompts; and next Tuesday for the first prompt of March (I know!).
Happy writing, all. Stay safe.
