Roadtrip ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #41

Bridge Ahead, Pacific Coast Highway, California, United States of America
Roadtrips take me away
Not to where I am going
Only from where I was

A roadtrip is best
Without clear destination
Without a timeline

The only intentions
To move
To explore
To leave behind
Perhaps not to return


I always return

…so far

Bridge ahead
Pacific Coast Highway
California, United States of America

Last week we explored grace… This week, let’s go exploring. Whether by car or bicycle, let’s hit the road. Let’s take a roadtrip. Or find something else in this photograph of California’s Pacific coast and the Pacific Coast Highway.

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’s challenge: Grace

Challenge #40 ~ Grace
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #40 was Grace, along with this photograph of The Gateway Arch, in St. Louis, Missouri.

Two bloggers found grace this past week, with two marvelous posts. Thanks! =)
