These curtains so accurately drawn
in water on my windowpane
remind me of briny tears, the way they ran
in perfect vertical lines down the misty windscreen
with the broken windscreen wiper
that day on the storm tossed seafront.
Even the urchin seagulls hugged the gritty beach.
Who knew that distance could hurt so much?

Today Kerry has shared photos by Kenia Santos, a video clip of artwork by Wuru-Natasha Ogunji, and some advice from Carl Jung: “The point is you start with any image…”
Kerry would like us to choose an image, remember the key points of simplicity, clarity and precision. And write a poem that, according to T.E. Hulme, is based on an absolutely accurate presentation of the subject, with no excess verbiage. An excellent prompt for a 55.
