Poetry Contest: Muse Through My Eyes

Muse Through My Eyes Results

Grand prize: DC$ 15

Contest Creator: TropicalSnowstorm

The rules were given as the following:

A great exercise for creating poetry is to choose a piece of art and let it be your muse. For this contest, I have selected four paintings that I find interesting and participants will create an original work inspired by one of them. Multiple entries are most welcome for any that find themselves particularly inspired.

I will judge the contest and entries can be in any style, but I generally prefer free verse. Please ensure that all entries have (Muse Contest) listed at the end of the title (e.g. “Hickory Dickory (Muse Contest)”). Also, please be SURE to include the link and cite the artist and title of the work that inspired your original poem so people can enjoy ‘seeing through your eyes’.

Although most images are in the public domain in the US (per citation on Wikipedia), please do NOT include them in your actual submission. Instead, just provide the link to the image I have provided so there is no possible misunderstanding for anyone visiting DarkPoetry.com.
