Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 45

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 45 picture is pretty much as it appears. Although, perhaps not the most dramatic in terms of subject matter, I thought the picture as it looks, has a wealth of potential and could literally go in a thousand different directions.

Empty bench in an empty park

Where are the children that used to play here

Where are their elders who sat here watching them

It’s the same everywhere, deserted parks and malls

Once busy streets are silent and forlorn

Schools and offices devoid of people, vacant

Where is everyone?

Worry not, they are all safe, sequestered at their homes

Staying away from public places and crowds

Finally, they have learned the wisdom of protecting

Themselves and others by being sensible and cautious

  1. I am a little flower
    Which way will I look
    All my friends look southwards
    I won’t go by the book

    I’m gonna look north…..
    I’m the one looking opposite to all my friends…..

    I won’t do what the others do
    I will do my own thing
    I like what you have done here Lynn
    You’ve pictured us in spring….

  2. A Bench All Alone

    Here I sit on a bench all alone
    Come sit with me, come sit with me
    I know it is COVID
    6 feet apart you say and wear a mask
    We can both fit on the bench 6 feet apart
    Please come and sit with me I would love the company
