365 Writing Prompts: Bookworms

Grab the nearest book. Open it and go to the tenth word. Do a Google Image Search of the word. Write about what the Image brings to mind.

The tenth word is: FIRST

 

Google Image: A circle divided into ten parts, first part is shaded,the color is green.

The image green brings to mind a lot of things such as a green garden, green with envy, green grass, green apple, green bananas and so on.

Color is extremely important,it helps us to relate through sensation, we react towards a specific color. When someone is jealous we say he/she is,’green with envy,’ we don’t always associate green with envy, there are a lot of  green things that are soothing, such as green grass, the grass reminds us that nature is coming alive, when we see green apple we feel the sensation of something sour, whereas green banana tells us it’s not ripe yet, but then again some green bananas, called plantains can be cooked we don’t need yellow plantains.

When we think about traffic lights, green tells us to go,yellow means caution and red tells us to stop.These signs are necessary it gives us the kind of freedom we need in a world full of vehicles and people, it teaches us the need for safety by using different colors of lights.

Color shows celebration of life in a variety of ways, in some parts of the world people paint their faces using different colors. Statues and monuments are built and painted in vibrant colors. They are done that way to attract tourists who visit these places and help to improve the economy of that place.

History tells us colorful tales through archaeological sites, architecture, art and literature. The story of “Taj Mahal” in India is famous which tells us it was built in memory of Mumtaz Mahal , Emperor Shah Jahan’s wife.

  1. Yes, very interesting reflections, and the story of Taj Mahal is indeed a colorful one. It is also said that Shah Jahan saw the building in a dream.
