Jinksy in her In Tandem blog, http://jinksy-intandem.blogspot.com/, gives a couple of her paintings as prompts. Simply looking at the one below, paired with the her blog name, stirred something up.

Somewhere between the sea and sky
exists a place where man can’t go.
A place where all the monsters live,
a place where nightmares grow.
No one can ever find the door,
it’s hidden deep within the mind,
but things crawl out night
through spectral holes in time.
Strange noises, screams and awful yells
reverberate until the sun
dissolves them like the morning mist,
too late for rest, the damage done.
