Curves ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #62

Harder to hit
More fun to drive
A pleasure to touch
A challenge to follow
Tangle of wire
Plateful of noodles

Arc vs line
Hard vs Supple
Crooked as a fish hook
Straight as an arrow
The well-trodden path
The less-travelled fork

Stainless Curve

Last week we explored Space…. This week? Let’s follow some Curves, or find something else in this abstraction of St. Louis’ fabulous Gateway Arch.

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: Space
Tree on Grassy Hillside, Atherton Tablelands, Palmerston Highway, Queensland, Australia
Challenge #61 ~ Space
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #61 was Space, along with this photograph of the open spaces of Queensland Australia’s Atherton Tablelands.

A couple of wonderful space explorations this week. Thanks! =)
