EKPHRASIS: Poetry of paintings and photographs

THEME:  The reveal of art-inspired poetry


With one month passed and a defined number of visual inputs in the building that is the keeper of a lot of knowledge (library), please present your labor, your work, your ode, sonnet, descriptive prose…from haiku to a wordy poem; tell us what inspired you from the display. Was it a memory, a feeling, a sense, a dreamscape, a desire?
