This weekend we’re asking for 33 of your own words inspired by the following photo.
Streetlight Girl with…
Laptop Bag or Wardrobe-in-a-bag?
Angsty or starved?
Mother and baby –
How long sidewalk-mired?
“Another head hangs lowly” –
“Another day for you and me in paradise.”
*NB: Zombie is one of my all-time favorite songs: to play and to sing. [I got to perform it at the Hard Rock Cafe once, so very very good memories attached to it! ] I initially fell in love with the song because of the feel of the song and that its backstory is haunting: It was written by the band The Cranberries as a protest song in memory of two boys who were killed in bombings by the Provisional Irish Republican Army in 1993. If you want to know more, you can read more about the bombings here. It will make you appreciate the song that much more. Also, for anyone who missed it, and in explanation of my note, the picture used for this weekend’s prompt is titled “another head hangs lowly”, the intro line of the song Zombie.
…also, Another Day in Paradise, by Phil Collins, needs no explanation.
