This week’s prompt: write an imagist poem
The Anglo-American Imagist movement started in the 1910s and favored precision of imagery and clear, sharp language. Ezra Pound coined the term by submitting three poems by Hilda Doolittle (H.D.) to Poetry magazine and calling her an Imagiste. Here are a couple of examples (imagist poem can be longer, I picked short ones to preserve space):
In A Station Of The Metro
The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
by Ezra Pound
Upon the maple leaves
The dew shines red,
But on the lotus blossom
It has the pale transparence of tears.
by Amy Lowell
