How to create images… with words?
Poetry would not be poetry without
the art of the METAPHOR, i.e.,
the art of creating images with words.
Let’s practice it:
find your element in one of the four images below,
(each one synthesizing a natural element)
and CAPTURE IT in your words…
Imagine that the painting would be lost in 10min
and all that would remain would be your poetic description.
PAINT, POET, PAINT!
