Write your fifth poem and post to the blog by the start of class on Thursday 10/10.
You have two different prompt options:
- Write an ekphrastic poem (in other words, a poem inspired by a work of art, like Ferlinghetti’s “Don’t Let that Horse…”). The work of art can be a painting, sculpture, piece of music, film, or anything else you consider a work of art.
- Write a poem with a specific object as its source of inspiration (as in Elizabeth’s Bishop’s “The Fish”).
