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 Septolet--a poem consisting of seven lines containing fourteen words with a break in between the two parts. Both parts deal with the same thought and create a picture.

Example #1:
Untitled

Lion
moving swiftly
across the plain,
most intent.

Antelope
grazing contently
on his meal.

Example #2:
Lion Woman

Prowling,
Lion woman
Seducer of men.

Trembling heart
Naked, heat
Rising from skin,
Ecstasy!
