Poet Colleen Chesebro has a new Ekphrastic prompt. She asks that we use the painting below by artist John Singer Sargent as inspiration for a syllabic poem. She adds, "Remember... don't just describe the woman... we can all see her. Like all of us, this woman has a story. Write THAT poem..."
I've written a simple tanka (5-7-5-7-7) and suggested a story. I wonder if you have a similar one after studying the painting. Do let me know. It's fun to hear how each of us perceives a work of art.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend. ❤️
