In this Invite to Write, we have chosen, a Katsushika Hokusai woodblock print of a man gazing at the moon over the ocean. We have been contemplating the Earth and our relationship to it a great deal around ARAS lately. Perhaps that is what this man is doing. Or maybe he has something else on his mind.
We hope this image will inspire you to write a poem that you can share here on the Forum. Please respond to this post with your poems. Thank you!
