Create a Poem

Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.~ Oscar Wilde

It’s time to curl up on the on the couch and create-a-poem. Using the visual inspiration from the photos above – CREATE a poem.

  • It could be a combination of one word captions inspired by each photo.
  • Each line of the poem could be a phrase created by each photo.
  • It could be any form of poetry or word play you choose, inspired by the photos.

I came up with this idea on a whim and it has become one of my favorite practices. I’m looking forward to reading a photo-poem by you in the comments.

    morning mist
    reaching forward
    fine lines
    filling the void

    Misty dusk
    propelling towards
    watery tusks
    blurring forward
    buttery bubbles
    captured between worlds

    Magic mist

    Ahhhhh, peace

    Cloaked in mystery
    Sound the Alarm
    Should of had a V8
    Diminishing returns
    Don’t burst my bubble
    Standing ovation

    Whispers heard through the fog
    She bends her ear to hear from whence it comes
    Silly girls playing in puddles
    As a thousand eyes watch
    Bubble bubble toil and trouble
    Wash away the day.

    Veiled in silence
    Gave up caffeine for Lent
    Soon you will fall into a deep, deep sleep
    Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble
    Evening vigil

    eyelashes float on bubbles —
    a whirlpool of salty tears.

    Clara, skating
    across the forest floor
    Some follow
    Other observe from the sidelines
    In a blink and a blur
    paths emerge
    and the curtain falls.

    the gentle mist hung heavily in the air,
    while the earth bubbled and cracked beneath her
    forming noises in the outside world that humans never really hear
    or understand.

    all the images were feasts for my eyes as I scrolled down, and for now, i’m happy with just the silence.

    She wanders in a fog
    Eyes eagerly seeking the sun
    She feels the water envelope her
    Peering at the disappearing surface
    She marvels at the beauty
    And knows there has always sunlight after all

    Oh I do not do your beautiful photos justice but it’s a fun practice. Thanks for the invite. :)
