Patterns ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #35

Patterns in the stone
Regular and irregular

In form
In structure
In colour
In time

Beauty pens her poetry
Deftly in the nature of things

Patterns in my day
Regular and irregular

In tasks
In challenges
In relations
In love

Beauty pens her poetry
Deftly in the nature of being

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Sunday mornings.

Each week I provide a photograph of mine along with a single word. The challenge? Use the pic and/or word as points of inspiration to create something — a photograph, a painting, prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, longread or just a few words. You are welcome to use these two elements (photograph and word) literally, thematically or metaphorically. If you create both images and words, all the better.

To participate:

  • Use any title you like
  • Your response can be words and/or an image
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • Place the challenge’s Pic (if you use it for inspiration) and Word prominently in your post
  • Mention that you are responding to the Pic and a Word Challenge
  • Add a link to this post in your response

To help us find your response, you can also:

Each week, I’ll list the previous week’s responses at the end of the new challenge. I may also share some on my social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc.

Last week, was a bit grey and somber… This week, find the beauty in patterns.

Last week’s challenge: Somber

Challenge #34 ~ Somber
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #34 was Somber, along with this photograph of the Oregon coastline shrouded in dense fog.

Three bloggers found their somber this week. Thanks for your submissions! =)
