Happy writing, my friends!
Thanks Tess! I will be back later this afternoon to read and visit!
This pic perfectly suited something I wrote this morning so have combined the two prompts. Thanks Tess.
tried my best... :-)) have a blessed Sunday everyone!... will visit your posts after our trip to Niagara Falls... JJRod'z
Tess, this one is fiendish! (But thanks all the same.)
Either I'm losing my touch or you are making it more difficult...thanks for the challenge.
In the picture it seems to be a she entering from another dimension or standing in a doorway deciding which way to go.It is a wrapped present in a way that I find quite disturbing, but I see on Wikipedia that the photographer was unhappy and trying to speak. Well, leave it to us! We give her voices.
Touch of the nightmares with this pictures - best taken in small doses, I find...
If you listen carefully you can hear the waves of moaning
Thanks for this intriguing Prompt..love the mystery of it!
intriguing it seems is the word of the day...smiles.
I don't think I can post a Magpie at the moment - too much disaster in the area where I live for me to concentrate. Perhaps later. Gorgeous picture though.
thanks Tess for a stunning photograph for this week..xx
It is a stunning photograph. Looking forward to reading all entries.
Life; it's a shell game. ;)
Tada! Thanks Tess!
I have spent the last few hours discovering the immense talent of this young woman ... thank you Tess.
We sunk to the depths of the ocean with this one, but then what do you expect when you prompt us with the naked shell lady?
I can't wait to return tonight and read everyone's take on the picture!
Fascinating story to this young artist's life.
wow- stupendous image- thanks Tess!
For the record, Tess, I find this sort of image offensive and uninspiring. It's hard to write when I'm looking over my shoulder to be sure the family can't see the screen. I look forward to prompts that leave more to the imagination of the talented writers who flock here.
Wonderful photograph ... really a challenge to write a poem about, or in my case, haiku.
it is a very intense photo.. but the nudity doesn't bother me... it isn't vulgar in content. My daughter is a visual artist in highschool at a college setting.. her junior year she painted nude models, female and male. I guess we are a bit more used to it. But I understand some are not. My 10 year old daughter saw this and just said "yuck'. ha. I found this artists work, though, very disturbing. Supposedly she wasn't depressed when she died, but I don't know... I think you picked the most interesting photo of all her work, though. :)
My Magpie is up! I really liked this week's image, intense stuff.
Thank you Tess for bringing such a fertile subject of another artistic genius who sadly left too soon. So much depth of life and death, she shared, all the while searching for the end of the woods!
It's fascinating to read the range of responses to your more...er...challenging prompts, Tess. What a cultural spectrum we all inhabit! For what it's worth, I've always agreed with Keats in his belief that the function of poetry is to examine and communicate both beauty and truth.
Interesting image, Tess. My thoughts took a turn to the darker side with this. Of course, its all a matter of perspective and speculation...I have to run out for a bit, but will be back later to comment on the other great poems and stories I know I'll find here!
Inside everyone of us there's another one trying to escape. Or something.
Interesting prompt..perhaps after everything, we all hope for freedom and for rebirth
This one was a definite challenge.
Compelling photo ... fast write this time ...
Et ego in Arcadia sum...Thanks for hosting.
So many dark themes and symbols here. It took me a day or two produce my offerering this week.
I'm a little behind...but I'm going to post anyway. Maybe I'll catch up!!Thanks Tess
See? I may be traveling backwards in time but I am catching up...sort of...Yay!
Tess,Deeply into myth, are we? Why not?TFool
ok, now I think I've caught up!Working hard to defibrillate my flash writing.Thanks for the help Tess!!
Hi Tess, very late I'm afraid. Busy, and I found this actually a difficult image to write around. The story of Woodman very sad, but I finally just went to sillier direction. k.
At this late stage of the week, mine is up.
