How do you succefully write a picture prompt?

i have an assignment do and forget how to write one

You're probably better off asking your teacher what he/she wants you to write on. A prompt could mean you're supposed to write about what is happening, what the context is of the picture, or how it makes you feel. There are several possibilities, so check with someone in your class or with your teacher to be sure.
