Ekphrasis, boiled down, is art describing another work of art. For poetry, the example most sites provide is John Keats’ “Ode on a Grecian Urn.”
Today will be my first of, hopefully, many Not Necessarily Ekphrasis (NNE) poetry pictures. I call it ‘Not Necessarily Ekphrasis’, because all of the poems won’t necessarily describe the pic on which they will be placed. I may find the picture a good match for the mood of the poem, or it may actually be an ekphrastic poem.
