    An EKPHRASIC is a poem based on another work; A poetry about a painting or sculpure or some such...

    There is no set style for an ekphrasic poem.

    Example by Brenda M. Weber:

    excerpt from Mona Lisa

    Behind kaleidoscopic eyes
    theres no mystery there that lies
    Shes the one to see it all
    from her position on a wall

    We look for something in her smile
    We stand to study her awhile
    Her face of beauty that we seek
    What would she say if she could speak?
