Prompt: Land Curve

An ongoing series of earth-related prompts as part of an Imunuri experiment to dwell repeatedly on a theme and its riffs, and/or the possible poetry challenge, bit by bit, of producing an epic or body of poems...

The contour of earth can resemble a part of the human form. A craggy shnoz in your local mountain range? The sleeping earth in hillscape? Respond creatively to some site where the local landscape seems as if the earth itself is taking human form. A possible riff: Write from the point of view of this landcurve, and/or include a photograph or drawing.
