Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 53

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 youwhat emotion; feeling; memory or whatever it may be – what does it arouse in you and to share it that with others.

Week 53, also takes us back to Prince Edward Island on the east coast of Canada. The picture is of an old abandoned fishing dory filled with a few fishing or lobster trap buoys. The funny thing about this is, it wasn’t located near the ocean. We found it at the end of a rural driveway out next the road.

Ah, discarded,

Lying here broken and unused


Man is callous and heartless


He throws away without a thought


What has served him for years in faith




Now it lies here crumbling


Its structure disintegrating


As it remembers days of yore


Days of glory and conquest over the waves


Days of fetching food that fed many a hungry belly




My heart goes out to this old dory


As it reaches its end of days


And I feel it deserves some dignity


For all the service it has rendered
