The Women in Red

Today's Pictures, Poetry & Prose prompt:

Art by Tammy Vitale

Suggested prompt...Be inspired by this art and use it to create a poem or a story.


Women in red used to get a bad rap
Ladies of the night, street-walkers, hos
But something funny happened on the road of life
And women in red have improved their goal

No longer just standing on every street corner
These women in red have a cause
Heart healthy a-dresses is the name of the game
Doing good for females young and old

(This was inspired by the Campbell's Healty Heart Campaign)

Thanks for choosing my painting for your prompt - it's one of my favorites....and the prompt made me immediately think of the poem "Warning"..."When I am an old woman I shall wear purple/With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.....and learn to spit....LOVE that poem. These gals are a bit too young for that, perhaps they're practicing "So people who know me are not too chocked and surprised/When suddenlty I am old, and start to wear purple."

We met each other
at 2; she has my back no
matter what. Friendship.
