Poetry Prompt - through Sunday, January 3, 2010


Liegende auf Diwan

By Max Pechstein

Circa 1910

This week, our SIMPLY SNICKERS poetry prompt includes these key words:




This week, we celebrate the birthday of German Expressionist painter Max Pechstein, who was born on December 31, 1881.

To honor this artist, SIMPLY SNICKERS offers samples of this artist’s work to accompany this week’s prompt.

  1. I'm putting mine up right now. I am accompanying it with some photos I found on the internet, because they identify better with the poem than the paintings. :)

  2. I got really stuck on the "stalk" part of the prompt, & rambled a bit about my stalker haha...
