Take a look at this 1 minute clip, which encapsulates his process.

Let the image speak to you and respond in a poetic form of your choosing:
Literal! Figurative! Reflective! Narrative! Symbolic!
As an alternative, you may write a Flash Fiction 55 inspired by the art, or on a subject of your choice, in memory of Galen, who first imagined this challenge. Prose is acceptable but must be within the limit of 55 words!
I wish to remind all participants that this linky does not expire and the post remains open and at the top of the page until Monday. If you link early, please return to read other poems linked up after your own.
