A ‘Waltz Wave’
por- tals ex- ist, my child; that, perhaps, is what I'd most like to impart to you while you yet perceive me as an au- thori- ty in your budding world - just - be- lieve.
‘What do you see’ Prompt #170
The ‘waltz wave’ poem above was written for Sadje’s weekly #WDYS prompt.
Sadje offers us this a digital art image of a man standing in front of a square portal that shows a scene from another world. Stairs lead up to this portal.
Writers are to use this digital 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)
