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 youand to share it that with others.“
Our Week 40 picture is pretty much as it appears. A traffic signal light attached to a tree in the forest.
It was on my brisk walk in the forest
That I passed by this empty house
An unusual sight met my bemused eyes
I saw a traffic light affixed to a tree in the yard
And to my further amazement, it was blinking red, amber, and green
The critters waiting to cross the driveway
Would wait on red and cross on green
I was sure that no one would believe it when I told them
How can it be, they’d say, bring someone to corroborate
I was alone, on a solo walk, I’ll tell them
Nobody else was a witness to this unusual situation
