Writing Prompt #1

OK, today I am posting a writing prompt. For those of you who are new to this kind of thing, a writing prompt is a tool to get you started, basically. It doesn't matter what you write either; poetry, essays, short stories, etc. The prompt works for any of it. Also, a prompt can be a word, a phrase, a photo...most anything. For our first blog prompt, I am going to use a couple photos I found on the net.

Here are the first two photo prompts. Take a look and see what kind of ideas start to form. Use either picture, or both if you'd like. Maybe they bring to mind a story from your childhood. Run with it. Maybe they form the basis for one or two poems. Go for it.

One rule: Have fun with it.
