Thanks, Melissa. I didn't know there is a word for it, but I do notice that images get poetic words flowing in my brain.

I only started writing poetry a few months ago and I love it. I am going through my photography of the past now and write words accompanied by my own pictures.

Sometimes I browse through Pixabay or other sites and write inspired by other people's work. One website that does it for me is: https://www.synapticstimuli.com/ I've written several poem now inspired by their artists' work.

And maybe I'll take up your suggestion and bring some people together to intensify the experience. Thanks for giving it a name.
