The Tower’s Hour



Immortalized by German Expressionist painter and print-maker Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, the Zytglogge Tower is a famous landmark in Bern, Switzerland.

This 13th Century structure is now a popular tourist attraction, although it has been used as a clock tower, guard station, and prison. 

The Zytglogge Tower contains an astronomical clock as well, constructed in the 15th Century, and a working glockenspiel.

Perhaps this image will spark your creativity for a poetic post, a fiction or fantasy story, or a journal entry.

Clock in with these keywords, and see what you can create for your own blog post:


astronomical

chime

clock

glockenspiel

hour

stars

time


Use any or all of the prompt words, or strike off on your own. (Get it?)

Be sure to double back with a linked comment, if you use this blog prompt on your own site.

Boo's blogging about Halloween?




Here’s a treat without a trick.

Bloggers: write of Halloweens.
Tell of costumes, foods, and scenes.
Write a poem. Pen a tale.
Tell a joke to make us wail.
Then let Simply Snickers know.

This blog prompt grabs the bull by the horns.



Sometimes we all need a little nudge to set us to writing again. And that’s no bull. (OK, maybe it is.)

Why buck the system? Or why not? See if this vintage image pokes your imagination into action. Use the illustration in your own post, if you wish.
