A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Greetings, everyone, to this, in my opinion, interlude to Autumn Sunday. This week, for the prompt, I thought we do something that we are all already doing when we are writing, but this time, without our consciousness. What do I mean?
For this prompt, I will present you with a painting. it will be a still life one, but if you don’t find it inspirational or find it boring everyone will use the same photo, pick your own. Here is the painting:

For the prompt, I want you to look at this painting (or the painting of your choice) and describe it to me: just simply describe what is there.
Try to not use any comparisons or excessive adjectives, or even imputing a personal opinion when describing the items. The idea is to list them and name them, in a way you see fit, in an order you see fit.
The purpose of this exercise is to allow the reader to interpret our art however they feel like it. In order for them to do so , our poem, story , book or a photograph needs to offer them a common ground. Often when we are writing, we are exploding with creativity, or ideas, or a lot of emotions bursting out together and our product may feel like our sole selves, our soul on the paper or canvas.
I am hoping this exercise will provide an opportunity for you to try out and see how each reader of your work can and most probably will see things differently. This big orange crab? To me it will mean the sea, to someone else a lavish meal, to someone third undeniable lust. I am hoping that by participating in this prompt you can discover many meanings in your writing, perhaps even the ones you did not see before, and play around with it, perhaps even manipulate it for an outcome.
Hope you have fun writing and whether you present a poem, a story, a flash, or just about anything, I will be very happy to see it.
