Divided ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #36

Sunset, Viewed from Point Imperial, Grand Canyon National Park, North Rim, Arizona, United States of America
The chasm between
You and I
Seems so deep
Seems so wide

I cannot see
Into the depths
I cannot see
The other side

Still, I throw myself into
The chasm between
You and I
Seek a way down
Forge a path across

I cannot live
On just one side
I cannot love
When so divided

A response to a challenge, within a challenge. This week’s Pic and a Word Challenge is also response to Earth, this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

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 we explored patterns… This week, cross the divide, or create one, or….

Last week’s challenge: Patterns

Hoodoos, Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah, United States of America
Challenge #35 ~ Patterns
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #35 was Patterns, along with this photograph of hoodoos in Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah.

Five bloggers explored the patterns this past week. Thanks for your submissions! =)
