A little while back I contributed a prose-y poem to the wonderful art + text collaboration site called Visual Verse. They provide a piece of art and you write about it for an hour, between 50 – 500 words. It’s a wonderful way to take a break, just let yourself write and enjoy it, then send it in, where it’s beautifully archived and becomes part of a larger project where other people have done the same thing, taken the same chance.
Anyone can contribute. I highly recommend it. Below is the captivating image by Denise Nestor that I studied while writing my piece, called “Death is just a circus trick.”
