Water Poetry

Take a look at this “liquid sculpture” image for a few moments. Immerse yourself in it (so to speak).

Now, write a poem using it as inspiration. You can choose a particular poetic form, or write free-form (after all, this is just for you, so you don’t have to worry about anyone telling you what is or isn’t poetry). However, I encourage you to take a look at one of the following pages and pick a form you’ve never tried–maybe one you’ve never even heard of before–just to see what it can spark in your writing.

I know I generally try to include a description of any image I link to, since images on the web disappear all the time. This time I’m not convinced I’m up to the task, and I think you’ll really benefit from cross-linking the visual with the verbal, which is kind of the point of this exercise. So, either visit liquid sculpture in general and find another particular image to use or, if that’s gone altogether, visit photo.net (or another site of your choosing) and choose a relatively abstract or artistic image to start with.
