I’ve never been good at making lists of my favorite books, songs, paintings… of my favorite art and artists. I love so many creative minds that have blessed the world with more sources for creativity. However, the written word is—without doubt—my favorite kind of art. And if I had to choose a writer whose mind, work and artistic ethics I completely admire, it has to be Neil Gaiman. The man is intelligent, has an enormous heart… and when it comes to telling tales, he explores the brightest and darkest bits of the human psyche… often, through the same character and story.
For day 24 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Base a poem on a piece by one of your favorite artists. I can’t wait to see your poetry speak to music, to fiction, to painting, to sculpting, to other poetry, to tightrope walking…
* Leave a link to your poem, as a comment. Include the title of your entry, and the direct link to your post. Example: “NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015”: http://magalyguerrero.com/napowrimo-with-magaly-guerrero-2015/. Visit other Wicked Darlings and comment on their yum.
