Stand-alone poem prompt 20: An ekphrastic poem

Day 20! Two-thirds of the way through–after today’s poem, and here’s the prompt:

Choose a piece of art that’s associated with your event (or your first event). Photos count (although I’m hoping to find a painting).

Write an ekphrastic poem–a poem that gives the reader a sensory anchor to the artwork but also explores beyond that–into your experience of the artwork and the event that inspired it.

This is a stand-alone prompt, not part of the sequence (although it could be).

I admit I’ve been looking forward to this prompt all month. Now I need to find the art.

Favorite line

My poem from yesterday still needs a lot of work, but my favorite line is:

the empty halls, four walls for a heart

What was your favorite line from the poem you wrote yesterday?
