Weekend Ekphrastic Haiku Theme. No. 1.

Weekend Ekphrastic Haiku Prompt


I want you to use this painting COAST 1953 from another favourite Cornish painter of mine this time PETER LANYON Tate to inspire ekphrastic haiku which refers to poetry that springs from art. You may decide to take one theme from this painting, perhaps the colours or a personal memory of your own about the coast. I love the energy and emotion of this painting, the colours too but it is the abstraction that keeps me returning to discover more each time. Where does it take you?

About Peter Lanyon


Warming cabinet,
green windows, small bird sings
rabid newsprint shouts...
