|Edvard Munch "The Girl in the Window" (detail) 1893|
In the past month I visited two art museums. Above and below are details from paintings - the top one is from "The Art Institute of Chicago" in Illinois, which is huge, and the rest are from a small museum in Roanoke, Virginia, "The Taubman Museum of Art".
Below is Pablo Neruda's "I Like For You To Be Still", read by Glenn Close
Today's challenge is simple. Choose at least one image and write a gently quiet poem, trying not to overuse the word quiet or like synonyms. (Although Pablo Neruda seems to make it work :) Paint with words the mood, the scene, the feelings of stillness, silence, and solitude.
|Edward Steichen "Coopers Bluff - Moonlight Strollers" (detail) 1905|
|Susan Macdowell Eakins "Portrait of Mary|
& Elizabeth Macdowell" (detail) 1879
|Frederick Carl Frieseke "In the Nursery" (detail) 1917|
|Ralph Albert Blakelock (1847-1919) "Solitude" (detail) undated|
|Winslow Homer "Woodchopper in the Adirondacks" (detail) 1870|
I would love a new poem, but will accept an older, updated (reworked) poem. Please post your specific post to the Linky below. Feel free to use more than one image and coming to the table late is acceptable as Fridays often get busy. We do have "Open Link Monday".
I look forward to your artistic interpretations.
