Evanescent ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #89

Himalayan Foothills Sunrise, Kunjapuri Devi Temple, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India
Celestial cyclic moment
With every day arise
As starlight crests horizon
Seeking eastern skies

Awakened human spirit
A grace divine replies

The night is done
New day is come

I breathe in deep
Exhale a grateful sigh

Inspired by the WordPress Photo Challenge which, this week, is Evanascent.

Last week we saw into Infinity. This week? Explore Evanescence, those fleeting moments which shape our lives, our insight. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of sunrise over the Himalayan Foothills of Rishikesh, India.

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 — whether on WordPress, Instagram, Flicker, Tumblr, etc. — you can also:

  • Add a comment on this post to announce your response
  • Apply the tag/hashtag “Pic and a Word Challenge” or “#picandawordchallenge” to your post

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: Infinity
Moon over Bowen, Howe Sound, Sea to Sky Highway, Bowen Island and Horseshoe Bay, British Columbia, Canada-1
Challenge #88 ~ Infinity
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #88 was Infinity, along with this photograph of the moon and planets over Howe Sound’s Bowen Island, in British Columbia, Canada.

Five bloggers expanded into Infinity this week. Thanks everyone! =)
