This #TankaTuesday challenge explores Ekphrastic poetry, inspired by works of art.
Colleen nsays :”I’m fascinated by fine art. Much of my newfound knowledge of art comes from Rebecca Budd’s blog, Chasing Art.com/blog. Many thanks to Rebecca for the inspiration.
This painting was featured on Rebecca’s post: PORTRAIT OF LADY AGNEW OF LOCHNAW BY JOHN SINGER SARGENT
You will definitely want to read Rebecca’s post. It’s full of wonderful information!
(Find more of John Singer Sargent’s paintings on National Galleries Scotland).”
This week, using the painting as your inspiration, please write either a syllabic poetry form or a freestyle poem, including a syllabic form (both poetry forms on the same post).
REMEMBER… don’t just describe the woman… we can all see her. Like all of us, this woman has a story. Write THAT poem…
This is a Lanterne Poem .
My blood boils in
They beckon you
Are you startled
My dress falls
Crumpled and torn
