Visual Inspiration—Photo Prompt #29

Let this image engage your muse. Write a paragraph, a short story, a poem, a memory, a journal entry…or whatever you feel inspired to create. And share your creations in the comments if you’d like!

I’ll help you slay your Perfectionism Dragon,
Herd your Inner Critics into a soundproof room,
Send your Procrastination Monster whimpering back to his cave,
And defuse all your creative blocks.

    This visual inspiration is great indeed. I recognized my post once and now at a glimpse here. Such confession may look strangely, yet different pictures brings the same aroma – the same knock on the heart.
    Great Prompt. I am going to post my response on my art therapy blog Modus Vivendi. I already have the photo to the post and your prompt offered the text – thank you.

    I’m feeling a bit poetic at the moment. Think all my narrative energy is being used to write my book but poetry is pure imagery. It’s taken me a while to connect with this prompt but now that I have I love it.



    I paint my family
    Like an adolescent
    Graphitizing a wall.

    There’s my grandmother
    Proud and kind
    The soft place to fall.

    She holds aunt’s hand
    As they walk
    Together to the shops.

    Dad carries sister
    Big, loud and tall
    He never stops.

    Other sister tall
    Stands on her own
    Or dancing at a ball.

    I paint Mum last
    Unsure of how
    To make the image last.
