My goodness, Sarah, that is writing that packs a punch. Weighty with emotion and things unsaid but felt deeply. Fantastic writing. The visual prompt of the blue bag is intriguing. Pondering it.

Thank you so much. I find the one hour constraint incredibly, and surprisingly, productive. It brings forth writing that I didn’t know I had in me. I guess because you have less time to think about it and just have to go with your initial response. Maybe I should try it when writing for my clients!

I hope you write a response to the final image and submit it. It’s intriguing, isn’t it?

PS the poem of mine I’ve shared here was in response to a different image, not the current one. I don’t want to post that as it hasn’t been reviewed by the Visual Verse team so I don’t know if it’ll get picked.
