SYNESTHESIA: INNER BODY MOVEMENT CONTEST


Blog Posted:11/16/2012 5:52:00 PM

greetings, dear soupers!...this contest is about sensory images based on synesthesia… synesthesia [sin-es-thee-zia] in poetry: an attempt to fuse
different senses by describing one in terms of another...

an example of synesthetic  description comes from  John Keat’s poem, Endymion:             
“….lost in pleasure at her
feet he sinks,
Touching with
dazzled lips her starlight hand. “ 

(The interplay of sight and touch is
defining).

...psychologists include seven kinds of mental images: 1) visual (sight, then brightness, color, and motion),2) auditory (hearing),  3) olfactory (smell),  4)gustatory (taste), 5) tactile(touch,  temperature, texture), 6) organic(awareness of heartbeat, breathing), and7) kinesthetic (awareness of muscle tension and movement).

write an original, NEW poem on INNER BODY MOVEMENT .. how does your body move, connect with sensations in unconscious ways when you are in your special space ( a garden, the park, open field---this is up to you).. what makes your motion free from mental expression? …observe how a cat stretches unknowingly, or  how a child swivels in a carnival, an adult sways with the wind…

the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOL5tZSrTmM  is your guide…

please take note: *conveying synesthetic imagery and pictorial appeal using kinesthetic with 1 or 2 senses would be required… *only free verse is allowed, minimum 14 lines, max 18…*no erotica, please!...

         

         

 

take your programmed head off and allow yourself to feel your inner energy… be alive, feel your body flowing spontaneously!

huggs and love!

    Afraid I'll have to let the younger ones do this one. I am using all of my wits right now to try to remember all of my possessions that are missing from the burglary last week. Have fun with your contest. Love, Joyce

    WAHOOO! Synesthesia is one of my favorite devices, yet one that I do not use as often as I'd like! Oh, yummy! Hope it doesn't fill too fast. The heart is willing, tonight, but the mind, oye, the mind is toast. LOL. xox Cyndi
