Friday Quick Write

This week, I had a dream that everyone in Teachers Write (like a thousand of us!) took a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the assignment to write a poem in response to any piece of art we loved. (I was in line for-EVER buying special exhibit tickets for everyone, but after that it was great fun!) If you’re itching for a writing prompt today, why not try it? The Met’s collection is online here – choose something you love and let it inspire a poem if you’d like. Kate Messner

Report from Rockport (Stuart Davis)

Squiggles and snippets
bursts of color
bright color springs forward as
paler ones recede
geometric shapes capture
a jazzed up town
pale yellow Main Street leads to
the local garage
where even the gas pump and nozzle
become funky art forms
the vitality of urban life
becomes music to my eyes
