Write an ekphrastic poem of this Frida Kahlo’s art piece. That’s the Day 6 prompt of Writer’s Digest’s 2016 PAD Challenge. I’m reminded of other art pieces I’ve seen–similar idea of the body as a garden. So maybe other artists have copied her idea. Whatever. Of course, the body returns to the earth upon death. In particular, the mother who gives birth is likened to the earth who nurtures plants. Rich imagery, right? And a metaphor, of course.
Don’t forget to tie your poem to Red Wolf Journal’s theme: Song Of Myself.
