Midnight Snack (003)

A simple photo prompt for insomniacs, early birds and the rest of you.
You can post at anytime its just the night owls and early birds get the first crack at it.

Every Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. a simple photo prompt is posted.  We will guide you in no direction. It is just you and the photo.  If it inspires you, then write about it, if it doesn't then go back to bed.  We hope you enjoy these pictures as you raid the fridge in the late hours searching for milk, ice cream and inspiration.

                     Simple Rules
  • Post anytime its just the night owls who get first crack
  • Make sure to visit other late night scribes.
  • Leave us a comment about the photo before you finally nod off.
  • Please post no more than 3 poems per prompt.


  1. This one got me thinking of how much I use my phone and ignore humanity around me...the photograph shows it with clarity.

  2. welll i think the pic shows that we are filled with our own self and oblivion to the world around us...we want to be in contact with unknown people hundreds of miles away but we are unable to talk to our neighbours :(

  3. Stillness in the middle of chaos. But in my poem it's not restful.

  4. Poets United,

    A little before midnight in USA and now a little after, posting!!!!
    My poem is a wonderment in nature. Perhaps as puzzling as the look on the face of the girl in the prompt photo???


  5. The girl in the picture is quite sad, I can totally connect. First time to join Midnight Snack!

  6. I know what's she's texting. That's the object of my poem. <3

  7. Sorry for two posts...the first link was wrong. Thanks Unknowngnome for letting me know of my error. :)

  8. sheesh, again with the photos of me :)

  9. Dang it, pasted the link to this site in #12 instead of my own offering. Try #13!

  10. wow this is a awesome prompt. think the picture speaks more than what words can express. linked my take even though its too late. :)

  11. Thank you all for the sweet comments! :)
