half-step  the smallest distance possible between two notes

  2. the simultaneous combination of tones, especially when blended into chords pleasing to the ear; chordal structure, as distinguished from melody and rhythm.
  3. the science of the structure, relations, and practical combination of chords.

Prompt: write a concrete poem

PAD Challenge

Prompt: write an ekphrastic poem

I went to dictionary.com and typed in ekphrastic to explore the word further than my general understanding, and nothing came up, so I took a look at the entry for Ekphrasis on Wikipedia. It didn’t add a lot to my understanding of ekphrastic poetry, but I did like some of the phrases in the description such as: illuminative liveliness and rhetorical vividness. So today, I will attempt to approach liveliness and vividness with my words.

The poem
