Imagery of the Visual Arts

I’ve been reading Kyle Vaughn’s Lightning Paths: 75 Poetry Writing Exercises, which inspired me to delve into another book study of poetry forms and responses. I’ll be making my way through the exercises and prompts between now and the end of the year.

Today’s exercise involves writing a poem based on a painting or other work of art, diving into the rich description to evoke the mood, tone, or emotion present in the piece.
