Poetry Prompt - for Sunday, June 29, 2008

Milkmaids with Cattle in a Landscape: The Farm at Laeken by Peter Paul Rubens (c1618).


For Sunday, June 29th, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:



This week, we celebrate the birth date of Flemish Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens (born June 28, 1577). To honor this master artist, SIMPLY SNICKERS offers three favorite pieces to accompany this week’s prompt. Feel free to use any or all of the pictures, or not, as inspiration strikes you.

Above left: Rubens and Isabella Brant in the Honeysuckle Bower
by Peter Paul Rubens (c1609).

At right: Equestrian Portrait of the Duke of Lerma
by Peter Paul Rubens (c1603).

Be sure to come back to SIMPLY SNICKERS by Sunday, June 29th, and leave a comment with a link to your post, once you have published your poem on your own blog.
