Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge

It’s the third week of the month! Time for an Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt

This challenge explores Ekphrastic writing inspired by visual art (photographs). When you write poetry based on a painting or photograph, we work with symbolism and metaphors. This week, don’t just describe what you see in the image. Check out How to Write Ekphrastic Poetry and apply some of the techniques used in the article to your own poem.

Dragons nest
Tales of old, mix
Where shining swords clash
Water spirits record
Kings are made by waterfalls
Where young knaves wait to be knighted
They bless their swords by sacred water
Rid the land of Roman occupation…
