Horsemen, Rainy Weather

For Sunday, July 20th, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:

Standing

Still

This week, we celebrate the birthday of French Impressionist artist Edgar Degas (born July 19, 1834). To honor this master artist, SIMPLY SNICKERS offers three favorite pieces to accompany this week’s prompt. Feel free to use any or all the pictures, or not, as inspiration strikes you.

Be sure to come back to SIMPLY SNICKERS by Sunday, July 20th, and leave a comment with a link to your post, once you have published your poem on your own blog.
