EKPHRASIS POEM: Based on a work of art – painting, sculpture, picture – and we will write one, on the spot, in this workshop. Some paintings will be on site for you to work with. A good ekphrasis poem is more than only describing the art but contains the impact, the personal connection, it made with the poet. Its colors, lines, and forms may evoke a face, a rainy road you remember, an old love, or new philosophy. Something will pull you in. We will get there with prime examples and a simple exercise and with your talent too.
