China-Kingdom of the Poem (posted by Laura Bloomsbury)
"The Poetics’ Challenge here is: Select any ONE of the above poems and with as many re-reads as you need, imagine what the poet has painted, what impressions are conveyed. Then:-
reinterpret the poem in your own style
OR for those of you who prefer a classical form then:-
re-interpret the poem in the Chinese LUSHI style.
Smoke-shadowed walls, hint of blackbird's nest
Soft song of male will soon vanish
Piano music plays, her fingers too gentle.
The melody is lost as is her love.
She brushes her palms along the keys
Her tears are in sync with April rain.
(I used "Crows Calling At Night by Li bai)
