A flat tire over the weekend with no possibility of repair until Monday, I was on foot. I recommend it…not the flat tire, but walking through your neighborhood. When I spied this “doggie in the window,” I grabbed my smartphone from my backpack and took a few photos. This one tugged at my heart. I could certainly make up a story around it. Would I write it from the dog’s perspective? The owner’s? My own? Hmmm. It’s really all my own, no matter which perspective I choose. Or, I could paint it…
There is nothing like a visual to evoke a memory, a feeling or some other emotional response.
If you were going to use this image as inspiration for your writing today, how would you begin? Does it inspire a poem, perhaps? Write it!
