Mystery ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #37

Dusk, Howe Sound, Britannia Beach, British Columbia, Canada
On a sunny day
Under a crisp blue sky
Snow-capped mountains
Across the turquoise sea

Exquisite beauty

But I prefer the mystery

Of the dusky night coming
Under a ceiling of grey
Hanging low, obscuring
Across the indigo sea

Enveloping Dusk
Howe Sound
Britannia Beach
British Columbia, Canada, 2016
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: Divided

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #36 was Divided, along with this photograph of the Grand Canyon from Point Imperial.

Two bloggers explored division this past week. Thanks for both your splendid submissions! =)
