Artwork to inspire poetry: man on ground

man on ground

Above is an artwork called man on ground.  The artwork was done at first with charcoal.  It was then scanned and computer altered.

This artwork can inspire poetry in a number of ways.

First, charcoal is generally poetic.  There is a poetic aspect to a drawing made (at least at first) with burnt wood.  Many symbolisms and metaphors can be drawn from that.

Second, a poet could obviously write about why the man was on the ground.  Is he sick?  Is he scared?  Did someone attack him?  Is he just on the ground because he wants to be?  There are many paths a poet could take with this.

Third, a poet could write about larger social issues.  This artwork might inspire a poet, for example, to write about something like homelessness.


At this point here are two blog notes:

First, a small note about the general contact form on M. Sakran’s blog:  The general contact form on the contact page consists of simply a textbox (this is different from the form for the Bookmark Giveaway).  Because of this, unless a contactor provides identifying information, such as name, email address, blog address, etc., M. Sakran will not have that information.

As a second note, the Bookmark Giveaway is currently happening.  In this giveaway, M. Sakran is intending to send some bookmarks to people FREE.  To learn more about the Bookmark Giveaway, read the Bookmark Giveaway Post.
