Summer Writing Exercise Series #60: Ekphrastic Horseride


For today, we're going to write a poem or prose piece inspired by another piece of art or an ekphrastic piece. The piece of art in question is the painting "Couple Riding" from 1906 by Wassily Kandinsky.

Whether you're writing a lyric poem about a horsebound date, a narrative of lovers escaping oppressive parents, a vignette about seeing a young couple kissing before the young man goes off to war, or any other of millions of options, be inspired by this painting.
