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 47 picture is a slow shutter speed capture of a section of “Little High Falls” in Bracebridge, Ontario.
Before this moment it touched a million surfaces
Now reaching its destination it cascades in so many falls
It has been everywhere and has seen everything
It passes no judgments, it condemns no one
A silent spectator, a neutral observer
It gives life, it grows life it IS life
But we recklessly waste it, pollute it, contaminate it
It’s time to give respect to this life giving nectar
Today’s prompt: Write a poem that starts with before this moment
