Ekphrastic poetry is defined as….
“An ekphrastic poem is based on a work of art. Usually, ekphrastic poems are written about a painting, but they can also be based on a sculpture, an object, or even architecture. A famous example is John Keats ’ poem “Ode on a Grecian Urn.”
Keats took one look at a couple painted on the urn and created an entire story about their lives together.
Whenever I become ‘stuck’ for creative ideas, a painting, a picture, a sculpture, always helps me. I have been fortunate and published quite a few poems in this sub-genre. If interested, copy and paste this link to see one of mine.
