Ekphrastic art pays homage to another art form. In the case of poetry, poets write a poem, taking their inspiration from a work of art. Its purpose is to allow the writer to creatively respond to a piece of artwork – not to interpret the meaning of the artwork.

 

Artwork and poetry by Southwest Michigan artist, Dave Middleton.
