Flesh, or: Form

A Senryลซ

shaped by ancestors
fashioned after precursors
flesh eclipses form

โ€˜What do you seeโ€™ Prompt #168

For Sadjeโ€™s weekly #WDYS prompt, she offers this photo of a woman sitting in between two busts.

The image was created by Cottonbro studio (Pexels).

We are to use this image as inspiration to produce art.


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    I just read an article about a woman who changed her appearance because she was teased. And she said it was unfortunate that she now, for the rest of her life would be judging herself by others standards of beauty.
