Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 37

Glen is the host of LTPP

Art(including pictures and images) should evoke an emotional response in those who are viewing them. That’s why art can leave such a long-lasting and poignant imprint within the depths of our psyche

Your challenge or writing prompt is this:

  • what emotions or feelings get evoked or aroused in you when you look at this photograph taken by Lynn

Remember, the goal isn’t necessarily to tell me and others exactly what the picture is.

The creative goal for all of us is “what does the picture evoke in you; what emotion; feeling; memory or whatever it may be – what does it arouse in you and to share it that with others.

Our Week 37 picture is an old maritime home taken in the Town of Lunenburg, located along the south shore of Nova Scotia.


The little heart-shaped bouquet of pink roses tied to the wooden fence told him all that was needed.

He knocked on the front door and opened it boldly, walking into the living room. She was there but not as he had hoped or imagined.

The body lay in a beautiful casket, which was draped with more pink roses. There was a serene look on her face.

A woman was sitting by her side. “Are you Sid?” She asked. He could only nod his head. She handed him a letter and said, ” I’ll give you privacy to say your farewell. I knew how much she loved you”

Sid couldn’t bring himself to open the letter, which he knew would contain an explanation. All he knew that he was supposed to come and meet her when he saw the pink bouquet tied to the fence. Her death was never a possibility that he had imagined.

He sat by the casket, head bowed in sorrow the letter still unopened in his hand.

  1. Wow, Sadje – all of this from a single photograph! This both sad and sweet and poignant. There is a lesson to be had in it as well: don’t wait until it’s too late to tell the people you love how you feel about them.

  2. Sadje, I left a longer comment on Glen’s site. I get it on how pictures can evoke emotions. Oh, my gosh, tears brimming. A great deal of love shared in few words.

    Sadje, your words make me want to be a better person today. Today is all we really have. Thank you.
