Hello dear poets! Grace here to bring you an artist’s work as muse for our pens.
Our artist is a full time professional photographer, who was born and raised in Austin, Texas. She finds inspiration in faces, new places, shapes, colors, light and quiet little moments. Most days you will find her wandering in the tall grass somewhere between Austin and Nashville with her dog, Eleanor.
I have chosen her work, Arrangements, the theme for this Poetics. If you are a tidy person, the one who conscientiously arranges things, then her photos would speak to you. If not, its fine too as you can write in rebellion to the neat arrangements of things in a canvas.
Please note that I have Emily Blincoe’s permission to post these photos in our blog. If you wish to use them for your poem as well, you can credit her at her blog. The use of these photos in your blog is optional; what is important is your poetic response.
All photos posted here are used with permission- credit to Emily Blincoe.
Here is the prompt: The theme is arrangements. You can write about the experience of looking at the photos, or write about the scene or subject being depicted in the artwork. You can also write in the voice of the object (e.g. stones, french fries, toothbrush) or write in the voice of the artist, or you can relate the work of the artist to something else that it reminds you of.
If you are new, here’s how to join:
See you at the poetry trail. Grace
