This week's prompt at Poetry Thursday was to be inspired by an image.
Once again, I've been pretty busy (looking forward to a break at Easter), so I pulled a poem out of my files. This poem was inspired by a Picasso painting which you can find here (you will need to scroll down the page).
Seated Woman with Fish Hat
I'm sitting here with a turbot on my head
This is ridiculous
I hope it's finished soon
Even with the lemon on top,
This fish is starting to stink.
That fellow - Pablo something-or-other -
Calls himself an artist - Hah!
He's given me two eyes on the same side of my face
Like a flounder
Doesn't know a front view from a profile
If he's an artist, I'll eat my hat
