Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 40 and Tuesday Writing Prompt

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 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


Tuesday Writing Prompt

Today’s prompt: Write a poem about an empty house. Use the words brisk and solo.
