Read this beautiful poem, "Portrait of the Horse", by Jaswinder Bolina.
Write a poem or short story titled "Portrait of the _________" (after Jaswinder Bolina). You fill in the blank. Portrait of the Elephant. Portrait of the Child. Portrait of the Ghost. What does the figurative elephant-child-ghost represent in your life? Is it the noisy anxiety that wakes you in the morning? Or is it the silence between you and your mother? Are you sometimes the elephant-child-ghost? Or is it something you wish you could be? Something you pretend to be to avoid something else? How do you feel about it, how do those feelings shift—do they move the way an elephant or child or ghost moves?
