Day 24 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly
Base a poem on a piece of art by a favourite artist.
One of my all time favourites is the deeply troubled
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
(portrait by William Holman Hunt)
I have always been impressed with the "strength" he saw in his models. They can appear almost masculine in build, while showing the true grace of femininity.
He was also a poet, and wrote poems about all of his paintings...and he looks uncannily like Mr Poe don't you think?
(aka The Bride of Solomon)
A jewel surround by precious gems
of multi-coloured hues.
That shine and sparkle in the sun.
Blossom that grows amidst the flowers
in the morning dew.
Cloaked in the luscious greens of your garden.
With eyes blinded by your singular beauty
I gaze upon you.
And my heart weeps with joy at your existence.
Enjoy :D XXX
