'Warning The Stars' Saturday #2: 'Fall Nights' Three Pics and a Word Pile (Wordle)

Okay, for this week I'm encouraging you to be inspired by some visuals, and then draw a parallel between the visual and the printed word.

Does that sound too complex?  It's really not!

Let's go step by step!

Step #1:  Take a few moments to gaze into the atmosphere of these three photos:




Be inspired by the colors...the empty street...the string of lights...the arranging contrast of light and dark.  It's Autumn in each one...do you see a cafe somewhere?  An abandoned street, maybe there's a dancing crowd on the corner, just out of view.  Weekend or weekday?  Party of one or private date?  Go where ever the muse might take you!

Step 2:  Take the idea(s) you derived from the previous pictures and write your poem/fiction/flash/prose (whatever form you wish) by using all (or as many as can be  incorporated) of the words from the 'word pile' below:


WORDLE: (for those of us who need a visual)


WORD PILE:
fall            
fairy-lights
fine
solstice
equinox
fox
wine
dining
shadow
pub
smoky
woods
saffron
candied
lantern


Write and link up with us.  Or write alone.  Or just be inspired!   I create these prompts to serve our muse, use them however you wish!

  1. What an intriguing prompt! It really resonated with my muse. Images of electric light, magical illuminated moments contrasted to the mystique of night not clothed in manufactured light. A recent camping trip inspired me to contemplate darkness, grateful both for the opportunity to witness a wild night and for the ability to blot it out. There was some ensuing guilt and awe for what humankind has accomplished, and fear and hope for what's to come. I had a hard time capturing what I meant, but here's the result: http://throughthewindwinding.blogspot.com/2014/10/from-when-our-moon-became-sun.html Cheers!
