Street Poem by Susie Clevenger
First up is Susie's Taking It To the Streets, to create some street poetry that is uplifting, like her wonderful example above.
Artist Rachel Pentergrass

Or you might enjoy Margaret's Dolls, Revisited, from Artistic Interpretations by Margaret, taking inspiration from some marvelous dolls created by her daughter and her daughter's classmates. Choose one and tell us a story.

Another possibility is Shay's prompt at Fireblossom Friday: The Art of Gerda Wegener. Choose one of the gorgeous paintings, and take it as far as you like, remembering that Gerda's favorite model was Lili, formerly Gerda's husband, Einer, who became Lili during their marriage. (If you have seen The Danish Girl, Gerda's art will really speak to you.)
You may also browse the sidebar archive (2011 to 2016), and choose something else, if you prefer. Just let us know which prompt you are writing to.
Have fun! Then link your new poem, and take some time to enjoy the work of our fellow poets.
How can anyone say no to Taking It to the Streets with Sherry and Susie?
Yummy selection, Sherry!
Happy Saturday, everyone.
Sherry, I found a watercolour profile that Gerda painted of Lili, in 1928, as my photo prompt, and my poem that accompanies it. Thank you, for letting me, explore more fully, Lili and Gerda's life.
Thanks for standing in Sherry. These are some of my favourite past prompts.
Hi kids, just back from running errands, and will be diving in. Looking forward to reading all of the responses. Yay!
I had to do Gerda... I missed it when it came and I felt that I missed out something
Thank you for responding to the prompt, kids......each of your poems is so very beautiful, and moving.
Thanks, Sherry, for stepping in and helping me. I'm traveling a few times this month and moving to the mountains - our family will finally be all under one roof again. Thanks a million.
I've been a little busy lately offline but wrote a new poem that I linked today. I wrote a poem for When Good Wishes Go Bad from 4/20/16 that I missed during April.
I hope everyone has a good week!
Bekkie, have made several tries to comment on your post, only the test comment made it thru...will keep trying, no ideas what is wrong. But I love your poem.
Thanks Sherry! I chose one of Gerda Wegener's paintings and let it speak to me.
I too liked the idea of taking it to the streets!
