Twitter friend @Marousia recently mentioned she needed a prompt for a poem. I sent her this photo of an artist’s studio in Huế, from my huge collection of pictures I’ve taken in Việt Nam. In response, she wrote Ekphrasis: An Artist’s Studio in HueReading her poem, I want to go back to that studio, to bask in that spirit of place.
