To me poetry and art have a natural synergy together. Whereby, one balances the other and enhances it. When you look at a painting and I also want to include good photography in this too; I am struck by its story. It is a timeless snapshot of what was going on at that moment ‘stuck in a moment’ a micro story, a poem. What a thing to have as a writer. I implore you to visit RAMM Exeter Museum and not be inspired by their treasures try Clare Woods ‘Daddy Witch’ on exhibition at this moment -what does that evoke? Or a Burra ? Or a clock or a fossil ? Great writing prompts.
