Darkness ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #48

Light through the Autumn Colours, Over Lynn Mansion, Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada
Darkness is just a place
A state of mind
In which I have closed my eyes
To the beautiful perfection
Of existence

All I need
Is to open them
To see truly
And the light floods in

Over Lynn Mansion
British Columbia, Canada

Taken on location for The Magicians, Season 1, 2015

Last week we took up the fight, with Resistance This week? Find your way out of the darkness, or glory in it… or find something else in this photograph of light streaming from the fall colours in the night.

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: Resistance

Resist me!
Challenge #47 ~ Resist
