Poetry Prompt #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!
