Weekly Scribblings #89: Keeping It Real
(posted by Rosemary)
Wikipedia tells us that Realism in art (including literature) is ‘the attempt to represent subject matter truthfully, without artificiality.’ It tends to focus on ‘the depiction of ordinary, everyday subjects’ and ‘attempts to represent familiar things as they are’.
"Below is a selection of Manu Kant’s poetry:
on my morning walk
inside an abandoned house
trees laden with unripe mangoes
As a Realist, he focuses on observable details and adds no other commentary.
Today I invite you to write something – anything – from a realist perspective."

ears lay flat
whiskers long and white
one leg splayed out
