WORD PAINTING




Freewrite a scene, story, or poem inspired by this image. Use strong sensory details to evoke the imagery necessary to push this creation forward to completion.

AS A CHALLENGE:


Use this painting as inspiration to write a TERZA RIMA--a poetic rhyme scheme that involve interlocking rhymes, written in iambic tercets. The rhyme scheme is aba bcb cdc ded (and so forth) for as long as the poet wishes to continue. Although no specific line length is required, most terza rima poems in English are written in iambic pentameter. If other line lengths are used, such as tetrameter, all lines must be in that length.

HAVE FUN!
