Happy Sunday everyone. Today I’m sharing another visual writing prompt. Otherwise known as a picture that may inspire you to write. This is one I took in South Carolina:
Not sure why, but trees appeal to me. They can take such odd and amazing shapes and colors. This one, as you can tell, is quite grand. It looked like it had been standing for years, as I’m sure it had been, in quiet majesty.
What was most interesting, to me, was the Spanish Moss. The day I took the picture, it was cold and windy. But only the moss on the left side is blowing. The moss on the right is hanging straight down, oblivious to the wind. Lest you think I pieced two pics together, I assure you, I am not that good with Fireworks.
When I took the picture, I was enthralled by the size, shape and position of the tree. When I saw the result, the moss was spooky. The wind was really howling that day and yet the moss on one side stayed calm. There’s a lot of symbolism in this tree, to my eyes. How about yours?
