This weeks inspiration comes from a painting by Claude Monet. I am quite an impressionist fan and have been for a number of years. So just for fun, if you are lacking inspiration, here is a painting and a poem to try to inspire you:
The Water Nymphs by Ellis Parker Butler
They hide in the brook when I seek to draw nearer,
Laughing amain when I feign to depart;
Often I hear them, now faint and now clearer—
Innocent bold or so sweetly discreet.
Are they Nymphs of the Stream at their playing
Or but the brook I mistook for a voice?
Little care I; for, despite harsh Time’s flaying,
Brook voice or Nymph voice still makes me rejoice.
Enjoy! Please remember that I am still running blog candy for anyone who takes part in last weeks Fridays Fable, open until 1 August, there have only been two entries so far, so you stand a good chance!
