Returning from Departure Bay

Returning from Departure Bay

Every journey, like a story
Has beginning, middle and end

Like beginnings, the endings
Do not come at home
The journey is finished
When we no longer roam

There’s a point when we look back
To recall what was seen
And a little remorse
For what might have been

But there’s always a next time
It’s not really the end

This is Day Five (FIVE!) of my responses to the Five Photos, Five Stories challenge. The challenge rules: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days, and tell a story about each photo. The story can be truth or fiction, poetry or prose. Each day one must also nominate a fellow blogger to participate in the challenge.”

Since I post at least one photo and story a day already, I’ve upped the ante… last Wednesday, I started what has worked out to be a five day road and ferry trip. So, on each day I’ll post a photograph taken that day, along with a story. (Which should be interesting as I’m still working out the kinks of my photographic and writing workflow on this tablet I’m travelling with.)

Thank you, Jennifer Nichole Wells, for laying down the white glove of this challenge.

For the last bit of today’s challenge, I nominate Betty Sinclair. She’s a fellow New West Writer’s group member, and the first to take on our NWW Photo Prompt challenge with her post Dancing With Vertigo. She did so well there, I’m looking forward to seeing what she does here.

All five days can now be found on the Five Photos Five Stories tag page, but in reverse order of the days posted.

And here’s recollection of what we’ve seen these past five days:
