I have been doing this on and off for years. I find a work that resonates and then write down my thoughts as a poem. I might tweak it a bit afterwards but essentially what is written here is faithful to what I felt at the time.
I do not read anything about the work until I have written my poem. Sometimes, of course, it is impossible to approach something well known without already having some information or opinion about it.
Window of darkness-Lack of light
Sucked-in black velvet illusion of infinity
Vacuum of warmth
To crawl in and be forgotten and to forget for a while
