Tuesday Writing Prompt & Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 47

Glen is the host of LTPP and Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge

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 youwhat 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

  1. To have the freedom to be free-flowing. Watch the water cascade down those rocks. To just let yourself go. Not a care in the world. How serene and peaceful is that?

  2. Yes, yes — this! we are a wasteful bunch. We do that with food, and water: commodities that many do NOT have at their disposal. “Because we can!” should never be a good reason when others cannot due to ‘circumstances’

    Oh, this is what your lovely poem evoked in me. Thanks for sharing it. It’s precious, Sadje. Be well, I wish you miracles.
